Safeguard Your Teeth With Custom Mouthguards

Many people wrongly assume that the boil-and-bite mouthguards you purchase at the store are enough to protect your mouth from damage if you play sports or grind your teeth. However, they don’t offer the type of defense your teeth, mouth, and gums need to avoid injury. Our custom-made mouthguards are designed to fit your smile. The superior fit makes it easy for you to wear your mouthguard at night or while playing sports. We offer:

  • Athletic Mouthguards – As an athlete, you understand you are at risk for injuries. It’s the reason you wear pads and other gear that protect your body while you play. Your mouth is at risk too! Our mouthguards protect your teeth, mouth, and gums so you can play safely.
  • Night Guards – TMJ-related behaviors like teeth grinding are another way you put your smile at risk. We can help you stop the damaging effects this behavior causes while you sleep. By wearing a night mouthguard, you will stop the pain in your jaw and avoid unnecessary harm to your teeth and gums.

Whether you are an athlete or suffer with TMJ symptoms, it’s important to do what you can to guard the health of your smile. For mouthguards in Reedley, call us today at 559-638-3611 for an appointment. While you’re at it, make sure to schedule your cleaning and exam too!

Common Questions About Mouthguards

Why are mouthguards important?

Mouthguards can serve several important functions, including protecting your teeth, gums, jaw, and head while playing sports and preventing you from grinding your teeth at night. In either case, a mouthguard created by your dentist is the best way to ensure a custom, comfortable fit and that it’s made of high-quality, durable material.

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 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 Reedley Dental Care, we can have athletic mouthguards made, as well as mouthguards to help prevent bruxism, or teeth grinding.
