What are Custom Mouthguards?

Mouthguards are vital for protecting your teeth and preventing injury during sports, but they can be uncomfortable to wear. 

A custom-made mouthguard is a better option than either a stock or boil-and-bite mouthguard. While custom mouthguards are more expensive than over-the-counter mouthguards, they fit your mouth perfectly for maximum protection. It means that you’ll have more comfort while wearing it, which will reduce the risk of accidentally removing it by rolling over on it or chewing on it in your sleep. It also provides superior protection against dental injuries like broken teeth, chipped fillings, and jaw fractures.

What are Custom Mouthguards?

Mouthguards protect your teeth, gums, tongue, and cheeks from trauma caused by sports injuries or teeth grinding. It can prevent you from chipping or losing your teeth, damaging a nerve in a tooth, and damaging the soft tissues of your lips, gums, tongue, and inside cheeks.

Sports Mouthguard

Sports injuries are not uncommon, especially for sports like football and ice hockey, where there is significant contact. Every year, thousands of athletes suffer sports-related injuries.

Sports injuries can damage your teeth and tongue. For athletes, mouthguards provide dental protection against impact. They can help protect teeth and lips while doing any activity that risks the mouth, including non-contact sports like basketball and skateboarding.

Bruxism Splint

Another type of mouthguard is a bite splint, used to treat bruxism or chronic clenching and grinding. Bruxism is frequently linked to obstructive sleep apnoea.

Most people tend to grind their teeth due to stress. It can happen while you’re driving home from work, sitting at the desk or even when you’re sleeping.  Since overuse can cause your teeth to wear down and break, a mouthguard for bruxism trains your temporomandibular joint (TMJ, the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull) and jaw muscles to relax.

FAQs About Custom Mouthguards

There are several types of mouthguards, and the cost of a mouthguard will vary depending on the type. Custom-fitted mouthguards are more expensive, ranging from $100 to $300, while boil-and-bite guards cost $5 to $80.
A custom-made mouthguard can last from two to three years with proper care, depending on how often you use it and how much wear and tear it takes. It is recommended to bring your mouthguard to your dental checkup so your dentist can examine it for signs of wear and tear and ensure that it is in good condition. Stock mouthguards and boil-and-bite mouthguards may need replacing more often because they are not as durable. The teeth and mouths of children and teens are still growing, so they may also need to replace their mouthguards more often.

Getting a custom mouthguard starts with taking an impression of your teeth. Then we pour a mould into the material to create a replica of your mouth. Next, we melt and suck down a thick layer of acrylic over the model, trimming and smoothing the contours for a comfortable fit.

Your custom mouthguard is usually ready within a week of taking a dental impression.

The primary function of mouthguards is to help protect your teeth or dental appliances, like braces, veneers, dental implants, and dental bridges, as well as your gums, tongue, cheeks, and lips, from damage caused by sports injuries or teeth grinding. In addition, they can facilitate the reduction of snoring and mitigate obstructive sleep apnoea.
