What are mouthguards?

Mouthguards are dental appliances that protect your teeth and gums from damage during sports or other concerns, like bruxism. They are made from a comfortable material that the Mowry Dental team molds to fit your teeth for a secure fit. 

Mouthguards prevent chipped or broken teeth and prevent injuries to the tongue and lips. They can also reduce the risk of concussions and other types of head trauma. Mouthguards come in various styles to suit your needs and preferences.

What are the benefits of mouthguards?

Mouthguards are an essential piece of equipment for anyone engaging in contact sports or frequently experiencing teeth grinding. They protect the teeth and mouth from damage, mitigating potential complications. 

In addition to protecting your teeth, mouthguards reduce the risk of joint dislocation, jaw fractures, and lacerations to the surrounding oral tissue. They also help athletes breathe easier and speak more clearly. Overall, a mouthguard ensures you can focus on your performance rather than the potential risk of injury.

How do I know I need a mouthguard?

If you’re experiencing frequent teeth grinding or if you play sports and engage in activities that could result in dental injuries, you may prefer a mouthguard. Signs of bruxism, including soreness, headaches, and chipped teeth, can indicate a need for a mouthguard. Mouthguards can help protect your jaw from injury and alleviate the symptoms of bruxism. 

If you are unsure if you need a mouthguard, the Mowry Dental team is more than happy to walk you through your many options.

How are custom mouthguards different from store-bought?

You should always seek a mouthguard from Mowry Dental because the dental team can provide you with a custom-fit appliance tailored specifically to your unique mouth and teeth shape. A custom-fit mouthguard offers better protection and comfort than an over-the-counter mouthguard. 

Additionally, the Mowry Dental team can assess your oral health needs and determine if you have any dental issues that should be addressed before getting a mouthguard. They will guide you on how to care for and maintain your mouthguard, ensuring its longevity for maximum protection.
