- What are mouthguards and nightguards used for?
Athletic mouthguards are often used by patients who regularly participate in sports like football, soccer, and hockey. Because these sports have a higher risk of injury, patients should protect their teeth properly during games and practices to avoid a dental emergency. Patients who clench and grind their teeth at night utilize nightguards to prevent their teeth from damaging each other while they are asleep.
- How much does a custom mouthguard from a dentist cost?
The cost of a custom mouthguard from a dental office varies based on each patient and their dental insurance coverage. Our team can help you find an affordable financing option to make a custom nightguard or mouthguard work with your specific budget. It’s important to note that investing in a custom oral appliance can save lots of time, pain, and money since it protects the teeth from damage.
- How will I know if I need a mouthguard?
For patients who play sports, it’s usually pretty obvious whether or not they need an athletic mouthguard. For patients who clench and grind their teeth, however, it’s not always as obvious. If you often wake up with a sore jaw or you notice that your gums are receding, those signs can indicate that you are grinding your teeth at night. Our team can also examine your teeth and gums and review any other symptoms you have to determine if a custom oral appliance is right for you.
