Dental Mouthguards and Dental Night Guards

Custom Mouthguards for Athletes and Night Guards for Bruxism

At Smile Studio Dental, we understand the importance of protecting your smile in various situations. That’s why we offer custom mouthguards for athletes and night guards for individuals suffering from bruxism (teeth grinding).

Custom Mouthguards for Athletes:

  • Protecting your teeth during physical activities is essential whether you’re a professional athlete or enjoy recreational sports. Our custom mouthguards are designed to provide superior protection against sports-related injuries, such as broken teeth, fractured jaws, and soft tissue damage.
  • Our mouthguards are tailored to your dental anatomy, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit. This allows for clear breathing and communication while offering maximum protection, enhancing your performance and peace of mind on the field or court.

Night Guards for Bruxism:

  • Do you wake up with jaw pain, headaches, or worn-down teeth? You may suffer from bruxism, a common condition of teeth grinding or clenching during sleep. Our custom night guards are specially designed to alleviate symptoms and protect your teeth from further damage.
  • By wearing a night guard, you can experience relief from bruxism-related discomfort and prevent long-term complications such as tooth wear, fractures, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Our night guards are crafted precisely to ensure a comfortable fit, promoting better sleep and oral health.

Our guards are tailored to your teeth, ensuring a perfect fit that offers comfort and security. Our experienced dental team will walk you through the selection and fitting process, offering personalized care and support at every step.

  • Does dental insurance cover mouthguards and night guards?

    In many cases, dental insurance may cover a portion of the cost of a custom mouthguard, especially if it is deemed medically necessary to protect against injury or address a dental condition such as bruxism.

    However, coverage can vary depending on your insurance plan and the specific circumstances. Please check with your dental insurance provider to understand the extent of your coverage for mouthguards and any associated out-of-pocket costs.

  • What types of dental mouthguards exist?

    Several types of mouthguards exist, each offering different levels of protection and comfort:

    1. Custom-Fit Mouthguards: These are individually crafted by a dentist based on impressions of your teeth. Custom-fit mouthguards offer the best protection, comfort, and fit, making them ideal for athletes and individuals with specific dental needs.
    2. Boil-and-Bite Mouthguards: These mouthguards are made from a thermoplastic material that softens when boiled. After boiling, you bite into the softened material to create an impression of your teeth. Boil-and-bite mouthguards offer a better fit than stock mouthguards but may not provide as much protection as custom-fit ones.
    3. Stock Mouthguards: These pre-made mouthguards come in standard sizes and are ready to wear right out of the package. While stock mouthguards are affordable and readily available, they often provide the least protection and comfort due to their generic fit.
    4. Night Guards: Also known as occlusal splints or bite guards, night guards are designed to be worn while sleeping to protect against teeth grinding (bruxism) and jaw clenching.
    5. Specialized Mouthguards: Certain activities may require specialized mouthguards, such as those designed for specific sports (e.g., football, hockey, boxing) or individuals with orthodontic appliances (e.g., braces).

    Choosing the right type of mouthguard depends on factors such as the intended use, the level of protection required, and individual preferences. It’s important to consult a dentist to determine the most suitable mouthguard for your needs.

  • Why are mouth guards important for athletes?

    Mouth guards are an essential piece of protective equipment for athletes, particularly in sports where there’s a risk of contact with other players, equipment, or hard surfaces. They help to cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth, injuries to the lips, tongue, face, or jaw, and even help to reduce the severity of concussions. By distributing the force of an impact more evenly, mouth guards can prevent significant dental injuries, which can be costly and painful to treat. For athletes of all ages and levels, wearing a mouth guard should be as routine as putting on a helmet or shin guards, playing a crucial role in both performance and safety.
