What are custom nightguards & mouthguards for?

Custom mouthguards protect your teeth from physical trauma. It’s common to find mouthguards used in contact sports like football, wrestling, and rugby. A custom mouthguard can be used anywhere you might have physical jaw injuries.

Nightguards are mouthguards that protect against “bruxism” or teeth grinding and sometimes address sleep apnea. Custom mouthguards offer a custom fit for each tooth, ensuring excellent protection from the pain and trauma associated with bruxism.

How long does it take to make a custom mouthguard?

A couple of factors can influence the length of time, but you can expect the process to take 1-3 weeks from start to finish.

Why is teeth grinding bad?

When you grind your teeth, you’re applying a large amount of force to the bone. This pressure and force can cause you to chip, crack, and even break your teeth. The tension required to grind the teeth can also cause problems for your jaw and other facial muscles.
