What are the benefits of custom mouthguards?
While there are many one-size-fits all mouthguards on the market, custom mouthguards use dental impressions to create a custom appliance that fits each patients’ smile perfectly. When mouthguards are more comfortable to wear, patients are more likely to wear them, which means their teeth are being protected on a regular basis. If you have tried wearing nightguards and have a hard time falling asleep with them, or your child hates wearing their athletic mouthguard, we recommend trying out a custom mouthguard to see if it’s a better fit.
Are custom mouthguards expensive?
Custom mouthguards are often more of an investment than store-bought oral appliances, but that is because they are durable and personalized for each individual patient. Since mouthguards protect your smile, they can save you a lot of time and money on restorative dental work as well. If you’re interested in having a custom mouthguard created for you, our team would be more than happy to find a flexible financing option that will allow you to easily fit a new mouthguard into your annual dental budget.
