Treatment with Mouthguards
Custom-fit professional mouthguards save people from replacing missing teeth or treating chipped and cracked teeth with dental crowns or tooth bonding. A preventative measure like a mouthguard saves money in the long run and can even reduce the chance of injury or concussion.
Over-the-counter mouth guards that are not custom-fit can easily fall out and may interfere with breathing and speaking. They also may not be as comfortable as custom professional mouthguards.
Dr. Naguib will create a mold of teeth to fabricate a mouthguard that conforms to the mouth. A customized, comfortable fit leads to improved endurance on the field without the need for jaw clenching to keep the mouthguard in place. Mouthguards should be cleaned regularly with antibacterial solution and thoroughly cleaned once a month to keep them fresh and fight bacteria.
Custom Mouthguard FAQs
Can night guards change your bite?
If a night guard is constructed correctly and fits well it will not change a patient’s bite, however, if a patient wears a nightguard that does not fit properly or is too tight it may alter their bite and teeth alignment.
Is a top or bottom night guard better?
Most patients get an upper guard to correct teeth. Upper guards are known to stay in place better than lower guards. Dentists may recommend lower guards because they are more comfortable and easier to adjust to. Top or bottom night guards are a preference-based decision.
How long does it take to make a custom mouthguard?
It typically takes between 2 weeks to a month to create a custom mouthguard. The first step is to take an impression of your mouth, which will then be shipped to a laboratory to create the mouthguard. The shipping and transferring involved make this about a two-to-three-week process.
