If you, or your child, is an avid sports enthusiast, you will want to come to our practice to get mouth guards in Baltimore.
Whether you or your child participates in athletics on a regular basis, or as a casual participant, you should always wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth and mouth. A mouth guard will not only keep your teeth from getting damaged, but will also protect your mouth from being injured by your teeth during play. If you grind your teeth when you sleep, or suffer from TMJ, a mouth guard will also help you reduce the serious problems caused by these dental issues. When you come to our practice for mouth guards in Baltimore, we can custom make a mouth guard, for you or your child, in both soft and hard materials.
Custom-fitted mouth protectors are made by our dental laboratory and are personalized just for you. Our dentist will first make an impression of your teeth and mouth. A mouth guard will then be molded over the model using special materials. Custom-made mouth guards are more expensive than stock mouth protectors. However, they are much more comfortable and will provide you or your child with much better protection for your teeth, gums, and lips. Usually mouth guards will only cover your upper teeth. However, if you are wearing braces, our dentist may make a mouth guard to cover your lower teeth, as well. Our dentist will be able to determine exactly which mouth guard type will work best for you after he has had a chance to examine your individual situation. Your mouth guard will be comfortable, tear resistant, and be durable and easy to clean. It also will not restrict your breathing or speech in any manner. A nocturnal bite played is a special type of mouth guard that can help protect your teeth from teeth grinding at night.
