If you’re active in sports, you need a mouth guard to protect your teeth. A mouth guard is a protective device worn over your teeth. Mouth guards may be custom- made or bought over the counter. Mouth guards are an integral component of preventive dentistry and help you to prevent trauma injuries to your teeth. Whether you’re a professional athlete or about to try out for your high school team, you need to get a mouth guard to ensure you don’t compromise your oral well-being.
Rock River Dental offers custom-fitted mouth guards in Fort Atkinson, WI. Our mouth guards are effective, comfortable, and well-fitting, and give you the protection you require without interfering with your speech or comfort.
Mouth guards are available in three forms or types: stock mouth guards, boil and bite mouth guards, and custom mouthguards. Stock mouth protectors are bought over the counter in sporting goods stores and at your local chemist shop. While they’re inexpensive compared to other options, stock protectors are also the least comfortable since they come in limited sizes and can be bulky.
Boil-and-bite mouth guards are, as the name suggests, made with some room for customization. Before using the mouth protector, you are required to boil the mouth protector to soften it and make it more flexible. While it’s flexible, you can adjust it to fit in your mouth correctly. Boil-and-bite mouth guards may be more comfortable than stock mouth guards, but never as comfortable as custom mouth guards.
Custom mouth guards in Fort Atkinson, WI are your best bet if you’re looking for ultimate comfort and protection. These mouth guards are individually designed from your teeth impressions. Our dentist in Fort Atkinson, WI will carefully examine you and take dental impressions. These are afterward sent to the dental lab, which manufactures a custom mouth protector from high-quality material.
Besides protecting athletes, custom mouth guards are also used in the management of tooth grinding or bruxism and sleep apnea.
