Custom Mouthguards

Protect Your Smile With Our Custom Mouthguards in Kinross

If you’re an athlete, any mouth injury can have long-lasting effects on your overall well-being. Injuries to the teeth or jaw may result in pain and discomfort and a change in your appearance, which can affect the way you feel about yourself.
Playing contact sports can damage your teeth and jaws. Fortunately, we have mouthguards to protect your teeth. However, some boil-and-bite mouthguards fit poorly on some patients. Standard stock models do not offer enough protection that you need. If you are looking for a mouthguard that fits your mouth perfectly, visit our dental clinic. We offer custom mouthguards that will be made just for you!
Custom-made mouthguards are a great way to protect your dental health from certain traumas and injuries. Our custom mouthguards will fit snuggly around the shapes of your molars and preserve them against damage during intense activity. These mouthguards are made using a mould of your mouth, giving them greater accuracy and better protection.

Benefits of Custom Mouthguards

The custom-fitted mouthguard is designed to fit your teeth and gums so it can distribute impacts more evenly. They have been designed carefully and have little suction, so you don’t need to worry about how to keep them in place in your mouth.
Mouthguards can be used to manage bruxism, which involves chronic clenching or grinding of the teeth. This is often accompanied by many problems, such as worn-out teeth, broken teeth, cracked teeth, jaw pain, and severe headaches. By wearing an occlusal splint (a mouthpiece for chewing), you may be able to keep your teeth’s enamel from getting worn down. This could also help you avoid jaw pain and temporomandibular joint tension.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Wearing a custom-made mouthguard can reduce the risk of injury when playing sports. It will protect you from indirect and direct impacts that may cause pain, damage, or discomfort in your face, jaw, lips, teeth, and gum area.

If you have bruxism, nightguards or occlusal splints can help to protect your teeth from chips and cracks while you sleep.

The dentist will take an impression of your teeth and send them to the dental laboratory. Then, the dental technician will make a mouthguard out of a thermoplastic polymer that fits your mouth perfectly.

If you take care of your mouthguard properly, it will last longer and won’t be damaged by bacteria. Here are some tips on how you can take care of your mouthguard:

  • Rinse your mouthguard with cool water after every use and clean it thoroughly. Let it air dry.
  • It would be best if you store your mouthguard in an airtight container or bag to keep it from being exposed to heat. This will help maintain its shape and prevent any sweating that could cause deformation of the product.
  • It would help if you keep your mouthguard in a vented, durable plastic case when not being used.
The cost of a custom mouthguard ranges from $100 to $300, which is way more expensive than stock or boil-and-bite guards.

Generally, mouthguards gradually break down over time due to tooth pressure. It’s essential that you replace it every two years or when the rubber starts feeling too firm.

If you notice any signs of wear or tear, you should replace your mouthguard as soon as possible. It is recommended to bring your mouthguard to your dentist’s office so they can check it for wear and tear or signs of damage.
