Protect Your Smile and Oral Health with Custom Mouthguards
Maintaining a healthy smile requires more than just regular brushing and flossing. For instance, if you suffer from teeth grinding (bruxism) or are involved in contact sports, using a mouthguard is crucial to protect your teeth. However, not all mouthguards are created equal. Customized dental guards, like the ones available at Southern Pine Dental, offer superior protection for your smile. Don’t settle for less when it comes to your dental health — choose the best protection available!
The process of getting a tailor-made mouthguard
There are several types of mouthguards. You can consider generic (stock) mouthguards bought over the counter. While these dental guards are inexpensive, they are uncomfortable to wear. Also, you can consider “boil and bite” mouthguards. Hot water softens these devices to take the shape of the mouth. They provide better protection than generic mouthguards but aren’t the best.
We recommend custom-made mouthguards designed with the specifics of your teeth and gums. First, we take an impression of your mouth and send the images to a dental lab to fabricate an appliance that fits your mouth precisely. Also, we use ultra-comfortable and durable materials to craft dental devices that offer superior protection and comfort.
We have two types of mouthguards
- Nightguards: We offer nightguards for patients battling bruxism (teeth grinding) and TMJ disorder (TMD). A nightguard covers the biting surfaces of your teeth to create a barrier between the upper and lower teeth. This dental device protects teeth from damage and relieves pressure on the temporomandibular joints (TMJs).
- Sports mouthguards: Sports like boxing, football, or volleyball are fun, but they can put you at risk of damaged teeth and gums. Don’t risk your smile with ill-fitting and uncomfortable store-bought mouthguards. Let us custom-make an athletic mouthguard to protect your smile when participating in the game you love.
Whether you need a nightguard or a sports mouthguard, you can trust the team at Southern Pine Dental for high-quality dental devices. Ready to get started? Please dial (334) 686-0843 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Durwood Nowell. We will help keep your teeth intact and your smile bright!
