Dr. Kilpatrick-: Mouthguards today are made very well if they're custom, because they really need to fit the person, the teeth, especially our youth today. There are so many concussions in every sport, and if you have the custom guards – which are easy for us, we take a couple of molds of the teeth and they fit exactly to their teeth – it can help prevent the concussion, because they're thicker, and the boil-and-bites, they're not as good because they don't fit as tight as the custom ones. So we're helping the youth not get concussions with the guards.
Our custom mouthguards work better than those you can buy at the sporting goods store because they are:
- More durable. They are made of stronger materials, so they’ll last longer and keep their shape. They will also withstand more force.
- Easier to wear. Because they’re made based on impressions of your teeth, they will fit you perfectly. They’ll stay put and be more comfortable.
- Customized for your sport. Dr. Fox will ensure you get a mouthguard with the right level of protection for your sport. She’ll determine whether you need one to protect just the upper teeth or both upper and lower teeth.
We also provide custom appliances for teeth grinding and snoring. If you need a mouthguard, call 856-997-2767.
Prevent Teeth Grinding Damage With MouthGuards
Teeth grinding (bruxism) is a habit that not only damages your teeth but can also cause a sore jaw, headaches, and other painful conditions. Using impressions of your teeth, Dr. Fox can create a custom mouthguard that will keep you from grinding or clenching your teeth and also relieve pressure on your jaw. Once you’ve stopped your grinding habit, she can repair any damage with dental crowns or other restorations.
If chronic snoring is keeping you and other members of your household from getting a restful night’s sleep, she can fit you for a snore guard. This device works by gently shifting your jaw forward while you sleep so your airway remains clear. Most snoring sufferers find a snore guard far more comfortable to wear than a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine, another commonly prescribed remedy for snoring.
