Dental Mouth Guards

Preventing damage to your teeth due to trauma or injury is a vital aspect of maintaining your oral health. Mouth guards are oral appliances that are worn over the teeth. These devices protect the teeth and mouth from damage or injury and are particularly useful for people who play contact sports or suffer from bruxism (grinding or clenching the teeth while sleeping). Mouth guards fit over the teeth and offer protection to the lips, tongue and cheek lining.

Mouth guards are available over-the-counter, but these are not very effective as they are made according to a fixed size and are bulky. They are prone to slippage and may not offer the protection you need. Their bulkiness can cause hindrances in your speech and breathing while you are wearing them.

Custom-made dental mouth guards are created by taking impressions of your teeth. They offer far superior protection and fit. These top-quality devices are manufactured in a dental laboratory using lightweight material. As a result, they are comfortable to wear and do not interfere with your speech, breathing and sleeping while you are wearing them. Once your mouth guard is ready, we will ensure that it is comfortable for you and fits perfectly.

The following are a few tips to help you care for your custom dental mouth guard:

  • Store your mouth guard in a sturdy, well-ventilated container.
  • Never leave the mouth guard exposed to warm temperatures.
  • Clean the mouth guard in cold soapy water, and allow it to air dry.
  • Regularly check your mouth guard for signs of wear and tear.
  • Rinse your mouth guard before and after each use and dry it properly.

"Beautiful kind people with affordable prices. My lumineer broke and the dentist was able to fix it. Excellent work. Then I went back for a cleaning and it was fantastic and my teeth felt awesome. Thank you to the receptionist as well who was very kind"

Jane R.

"I love Smile Matters! The office has personality and warmth, much of which is brought by the love staff and Dr. Quaidoo. A refreshingly female lead office with highly skilled and easy going staff. You won't be talked into anything here and they want to find a way to get you the care you need. In a medical field where Groupon deals can send patients seeking a deal every time they need a cleaning I am proud to settle down here and call this place my dental home!"
