Avoid Injury & Take Care of Your Oral Health

People often avoid mouthguards because they are uncomfortable. Yet, imagine how much discomfort you’d feel if you faced serious injury to your teeth! That’s why we recommend custom-made mouthguards instead of anything you might buy in the store. Not only will our protective devices guard your smile, they will also feel more comfortable in your mouth. Dr. Lennon offers a few different types of mouthguards based on your unique purposes. Here’s the different types we offer:

  • Athletic Mouthguard – These mouthguards are custom-fit to your smile. They are comfortable to wear while playing sports and protect your lips, tongue, and teeth. Wearing a mouthguard saves you from injury, which is 60 times more likely to occur when one isn’t worn, according to the American Dental Association (ADA).
  • Nighttime Mouthguards – We have two different types of mouthguards you can wear while you sleep. If you have a TMJ disorder or grind your teeth at night, our custom-made night guard can put a barrier between your teeth so you avoid the pain of teeth grinding. If you struggle with a snoring habit or sleep apnea, we have a special oral appliance that will open up your airways so you can stop snoring and sleep easy.

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.

Can mouthguards help with TMJ problems?

Yes, mouthguards from an experienced dentist are designed to fit over your upper and lower teeth so that as you sleep, your jaw stays in a forward position to properly realign the joint, as well as prevent you from clenching down and putting excess pressure on your TMJ during the night.

Where can I purchase a mouthguard?

While so-called boil-and-bite mouthguards are available from big-box retailers and sporting goods stores, we recommend that you let our team have a professional mouthguard made for you. We’ll take impressions of your mouth, then our lab partner will custom-craft your mouthguard to these exact specifications. The result will be a better-fitting, better-performing mouthguard.

How does a mouthguard work for snoring?

If you have sleep apnea, we can fit you with a custom mouthguard that fits comfortably in your mouth while you sleep. It will gently move your lower jaw forward a bit to help keep your tongue and the soft tissues in the back of your throat from blocking your airway during sleep. The result will be easier breathing with reduced or no snoring and fewer or no sleep apnea episodes.
