What Type of Mouth-guard Should You Use Every Day?

Mouth guards are coverings worn over teeth and often used to protect teeth from injury from teeth grinding and during sports. Stock mouth protectors are preformed and come ready to wear. They are inexpensive and can be bought at most sporting goods stores and department stores. However, little can be done to adjust their fit, they are bulky, make breathing and talking difficult, and they provide little or no protection. Dentists do not recommend their use.

Boil and bite mouth protectors also can be bought at many sporting goods stores and may offer a better fit than stock mouth protectors. The “boil and bite” mouth guard is made from thermoplastic material. It is placed in hot water to soften, then placed in the mouth and shaped around the teeth using finger and tongue pressure.?

“ Generally, mouth guards cover your upper teeth only, but in some instances (such as if you wear braces or another fixed dental appliance on your lower jaw), your dentist will make a mouth guard for the lower teeth as well. ”

Custom-fitted mouth protectors are individually designed and made in a dental office or a professional laboratory based on your dentist’s instructions. First, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth and a mouth guard is then molded over the model using a special material.

TRULY AMAZING! THE STAFF, FACILITY AND PHYSICAL CONDITION OF THE FACILITY ALL COMBINE TO ACHIEVE AN EXPERIENCE THAT TRULY EXCEEDS THE PRACTICE NAME.
THE NUMBER OF PROCEDURES COMPLETED IN TWO DAYS WOULD REQUIRE MONTHS OF APPOINTMENTS AT HOME AND WOULD BE AT LEAST 3 TIMES THE PRICE. ON A SCALE OF 10 THIS IS A 20! WELL DONE! ​

I FOUND MY EXPERIENCE ONE OF THE BEST. I DO IT LIKE DENTIST BUT YOUR DENTIST WERE WONDERFUL. HE PULLED A TOOTH AND I DID NOT FEEL IT AT ALL AND AFTER 4 DAYS IT STILL DOES NOT HURT. I LEFT MY MEDICINE IN THE DRIVERS CAR AND THEY HELP ME TO GET IT. I AM TELLING EVERYONE WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE IT WAS.​
