Custom Mouthguards Offer Many Kinds of Protection for Your Smile

You can wear a custom-made mouthguard for:

  • Snoring Relief – Wearing a custom mouthguard while sleeping enables you to breathe more easily by gently moving your jaw into a position that keeps your airway clear. This keeps you from snoring so you and other members of your household can sleep.
  • TMJ Pain Relief – A custom mouthguard can relieve pressure on your jaw that often results in TMJ pain. It also prevents you from grinding your teeth, a behavior that can lead to chipped, cracked, or even broken teeth.
  • Protection During Sports – An athletic mouthguard covers and cushions teeth so they are less prone to injury from balls or physical contact. A sports mouthguard is especially important for those who wear braces or other orthodontia.

Care For Your Mouthguard So It Performs Its Best

Your mouthguard will last longer if you follow our guidelines for:

  • Cleaning – It’s best to clean a mouthguard with non-abrasive toothpaste or mild antibacterial soap. Avoid using alcohol-based cleaners, including hand sanitizer.
  • Storage – Keep your mouthguard as dry as possible by storing it in a ventilated case. Keeping a mouthguard dry will discourage bacteria growth.
