Up Your Preventive Dental Care Game with Customized Mouthguards
A mouthguard or a dental splint is a soft piece of plastic molded to fit snugly over your teeth. Without a mouthguard, your smile might suffer from sports injuries or bruxism-induced pressure if you are a chronic teeth grinder.
Need to protect your smile in Framingham, Massachusetts? Welcome to Framingham Family Dental Care! We offer custom-made mouthguards to provide optimal comfort and superior protection for your smile.
Always consider custom-made mouthguards
Mouthguards aren’t created equal. Generic or off-the-shelf mouthguards are cheap and convenient but rarely fit well. Generic dental devices are made without considering the specifics of your dentition. As such, they tend to shift or move when inside your mouth.
Another option you can consider is boil and bite mouthguards. These dental devices are created using a flexible material that stretches when exposed to high temperatures. While these devices are better than their generic counterparts, they don’t offer the optimal protection you deserve.
Your smile is unique, and so should be your mouthguard. Dentists like Drs. Arvi Duka and Adelina Duka offer customized mouthguards after taking your bite impressions. Customized mouthguards provide maximum protection and are comfortable enough to allow you to breathe and communicate when in your mouth.
Custom-made mouthguards available at our practice
Our practice offers dental exams, cleanings, and fluoride treatments to protect teeth and gums from diseases and decay. Our preventive dental care services also include mouthguards to protect your smile from injury.
Mouthguard options you can find in our office include:
- Athletic mouthguard: Do you participate in contact sports like rugby, football, wrestling, and boxing? You need a sports dental guard to protect your teeth and gums from blows and knocks. Similarly, you should wear an athletic mouthguard for non-contact games like cycling, gymnastics, and skating. A sports guard absorbs the shock from blows, knocks, and falls to protect your teeth from structural damage and prevent lacerations to your cheeks, lips, and gums.
- Bruxism nightguards: Chronic teeth grinding (bruxism) exerts pressure on your teeth, resulting in dental damage and TMJ-related symptoms. A custom nightguard creates a barrier between the lower and upper teeth, reducing bruxism-induced pressure.
