Mouth Guards in
A mouth guard is a lightweight plastic appliance that is worn over the teeth to provide protection in the event of a hit. These devices are designed to feel comfortable while still ensuring excellent protection.
Contact sports are fun and healthy activities that are enjoyed by amateur and professional athletes alike. But these pastimes also put an individual at risk for experiencing an oral injury. Just one hard hit or blow to the mouth can have devastating consequences that could last a lifetime. That is why it is extremely important for all athletes to protect their teeth and other oral structures with properly fitted mouth guards.
At Gulf Coast Dental Associates, we offer custom-made mouth guards that are built using the finest materials available. This ensures that the patient will receive the best level of protection and optimal comfort when wearing the device.
Some of the issues that can be prevented by wearing a custom-fit mouth guard include:
- Lost or Damaged Teeth
- Jaw Damage
- Oral Lacerations
In addition to athletic mouth guards, we offer night guards for patients suffering from bruxism. This is a sleep condition that causes an individual to clench and grind their teeth while they are sleeping. Bruxism can lead to problems such as worn-down teeth, jaw injuries, headaches, and dental fractures if it is left untreated. Wearing a custom-fit night guard can prevent these issues and help the patient achieve a more satisfying night of sleep.
In order to receive a custom-fitted mouth guard or night guard, a patient must make two visits to our practice. The first visit will involve taking impressions of the patient’s teeth. We will then use the impression to create a custom mouth guard or night guard.
