Should You Inquire About Getting A Custom Mouth Guard


Posted on 11/17/2017 by Canyon Oral and Facial Surgery
Mouth Guard Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery NV 89149-4475
There is no doubt that mouth guards are useful devices that can provide much needed protection for people engaged in active sports.

They can not only prevent injury caused by direct impact to the teeth, but also redirects some of that force to the chin to minimize the potential of injury to the brain and neck.

Mouth guards are also useful for patients with Bruxism and TMJ disorders. However, before you get one from the local store, here are reasons why you should consider consulting out dentists first.

Professional Consultation
A custom mouth guard is fitted in the dentist's office. When you visit us, we will take an impression of your teeth and design a device that is best suited for your needs. There are many different types of mouth guards readily available today.

There are stock mouth and bite mouth devices that you can find at any sports store. These devices are inexpensive. Unfortunately, they may not be suited for your condition. It is important to seek professional help to establish the exact kind of device suited for you.

For example, if you want a solution for grinding teeth, our dentists can provide a specially designed nocturnal plate to prevent you from damaging your teeth. Proper diagnosis is necessary to ensure that the device provides the highest level of protection. Someone with Bruxism may need a different device from someone with TMJ disorder.

Extra Comfort
The other thing you need to keep in mind before getting a mouth guard from a sports store is that the generic devices can potentially cause more discomfort.

Depending on the materials used for the device, it can lead to difficulty in breathing, especially if it is bulky and forces you to keep your jaws clenched. A custom fitted device can provide the right level and protection. Visit us today to get the perfect mouth guard for your needs.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at Centennial Hills: (702) 660-5574, Summerlin: (702) 660-5576 today.
