We custom-fit two kinds of mouth guards for patients in our Edison dental clinic: sports guards, which protect your teeth during contact sports, and night guards (bite appliances), which protect your teeth from night-time grinding.
A custom-fit sports guard is more comfortable than a “boil-and-bite” one
Patients who play contact sports such as hockey, rugby, basketball, field hockey and football should wear a mouth guard to protect their teeth from impact. The multiple layers of cushioning in our guards are designed to absorb shock, not only to protect your teeth, but also to help prevent concussions. Because the guard is custom-fitted to your mouth, it is less likely to dislodge from your mouth on impact, and it is more comfortable to wear than the boil-and-bite varieties that you buy at the store.
