Benefits Of Custom Mouth Guards

Posted on 8/7/2023 by Evan
Benefits Of Custom Mouth GuardsDentists recommend mouth guards to people who suffer from oral health problems such as bruxism, TMJ disorders, and even sleep apnea. They play an important role in preventing oral injury. This means that they prevent injury to the teeth, tongue, cheeks, and jaw.

Today, there are three types of mouthguards which are custom made, boil and bite, and stock. Many people prefer the custom-made type because they offer more comfort. Let's take a detailed look at some benefits of custom mouth guards;

Custom Made Mouth Guards Are Cost Efficient

You may think that custom-made mouthguards are more expensive compared to the generic ones. However, over time, custom mouthguards prove to be more cost-efficient. While generic mouthguards wear out more because dental practitioners do not design them to cater to your specific dental needs. This means that over time, you will need to replace your generic mouthguards frequently. Unlike custom-made mouthguards, which are more durable.

Custom Made Mouth Guards Are More Comfortable

Most mouthguards are uncomfortable, and this discourages many people from wearing them. However, custom mouth guards eliminate this uncomfortable feeling because they make them from a mold of your mouth. This means that the mouth guard will be gentler and more comfortable for the gums and mouth.

Custom Mouth Guards Provide Maximum Protection

Each person has a unique dental formula; therefore, mouthguards should not be a 'one size fits all' appliance. This means that generic mouthguards cannot offer maximum protection to your mouth and teeth. This is because they do not design them specifically for you. Thus, you will wear them unevenly, meaning that they won't offer much protection. However, with a custom-made mouth guard, your teeth receive maximum protection, since they design it specifically for your use.

Custom-made mouthguards are a great long-term investment. This is because they not only help to avoid injury by providing maximum protection, but they are also comfortable to wear. What's more, is that you can personalize them however you want by choosing your favorite colors or adding stickers.
