Custom mouthguards are a conservation solution to tooth protection. Potentially saving you from requiring expensive restorative care following dental damage, a mouthguard is a good tool to have on hand just in case. Shaped similar to a retainer, mouthguards fit securely over your upper and lower teeth to prevent unwanted dental trauma. Whether you are active in playing contact sports, or you experience the signs and symptoms of a TMJ disorder, a custom mouthguard can be incorporated into your treatment plan. Our Miami, FL dentist office is happy to provide custom mouthguards to interested patients. Learn more about the uses and benefits of custom mouthguards below.
Custom Mouthguards in Miami, FL
Dr. Renier Suarez and Dr. Teresa Suarez are your local general dentists in Miami, FL. Together, they provide comprehensive and compassionate dental services to patients of all ages at 1-2-3 Smile Family Dentistry. If you need a custom mouthguard, they will ensure that your mouthguard fits your teeth perfectly, preventing any unwanted accidents due to an improper fit. Easily removed for cleaning and made of durable plastic material, a custom mouthguard gives you reliable tooth protection when you need it the most. Many contact sports require the use of a mouthguard to participate, while others only recommend it. It’s important to protect your teeth if you are engaging in activities where you could potentially suffer from unwanted dental damage. We would hate to see our patients suffering from a knocked-out tooth because they did not have a mouthguard on hand to use while playing their favorite sport.
Oral Appliance Therapy
Going above and beyond the use of a sports mouthguard, oral appliance therapy utilizes a nightguard that is designed to be worn while you sleep. The nightguard is created using impressions of your own teeth, unlike over-the-counter options which take a one size fits all approach. Whether you are looking to manage your teeth grinding habit or you need a conservative treatment option for TMJ disorder, our custom mouthguards can be incorporated into your treatment plan. If you experience tension headaches, earaches, jaw pain, or any other symptom of TMJ disorders, please schedule an appointment with our Miami, FL dentist office.
