Get the Best Protection Possible for Your Teeth

Mouthguards are an important part of family and general dental care. We don’t want you lose your smile because of a problem that can be prevented! They work best when they are custom-molded to fit your teeth. That’s why we make impressions of your teeth when you get a guard from us. You can get custom mouthguards to:

  • Prevent Injuries – Athletes who don’t wear mouthguards are 60 times more likely to suffer dental injuries than athletes who do, according to the American Dental Association.
  • Stop Snoring – If you are a chronic snorer, you may need to open your airway. The right oral appliance will do this for you. That allows you and your partner to enjoy deeper, more rejuvenating sleep.
  • End Teeth Grinding – If you are one of the millions of people who grind their teeth in their sleep, you may wake up with headaches or jaw pain. A night guard can stop the grinding and ease your pain.

Once you get your new mouthguard, you want it to last as long as possible. Clean it by using a non-abrasive toothpaste or mild antibacterial soap. Avoid hand sanitizer or other alcohol-based cleaners. You should keep your mouthguard as dry as you can when it’s not being used. This will discourage bacterial growth.

Common Questions About Mouthguards
Why are mouthguards important?

The most common reason to wear a mouthguard is to protect your teeth and gums while playing sports. Whether you’re participating in a contact sport or not, a well-made mouthguard is your best defense against blows to the mouth, teeth, gums, and jaw. Mouthguards can also alleviate symptoms of teeth grinding and TMJ disorders.

How are mouthguards made?

For any oral appliance to fit well and work effectively, it needs to be customized to the precise measurements of your mouth. Athletes who buy mass-produced guards from a sporting goods store, for example, will never find one that is sized comfortably or appropriately enough to provide full coverage and protection. We can create a mouthguard that allows you to move, breathe, and communicate easily while keeping your smile safe.

Which mouthguards work best?

The best mouthguard is one made especially for your or your child’s mouth. A professionally made mouthguard will outperform a store-bought “boil-and-bite” mouthguard because it will fit better, provide superior protection, and last longer. At Dallas Street Dental, we can have athletic mouthguards made, as well as mouthguards for TMJ pain.

How does a mouthguard help me stop snoring?

Snoring is caused when your tongue and tissues in your throat relax during sleep, partially obstructing your airway. If you suffer from sleep apnea, your airway may become completely blocked, causing you to briefly awaken many times during the night. A custom mouthguard solves both problems by easing your jaw into a position that keeps your airway clear.
