How Custom Nightguards Are Built

Considering a mouthguard? You might think about picking up a generic one from a store, but there are compelling reasons to choose a custom mouthguard from your dentist instead.

How It’s Made

At your appointment, we will take a precise impression of your teeth using dental putty. This ensures the mouthguard perfectly captures every unique aspect of your smile. The nightguard material is then shaped around this custom mold to create a durable, protective device.

Does It Really Matter?

Yes, especially for certain activities! A store-bought mouthguard might suffice for light activities, but a custom one offers superior protection for sports, high-risk jobs, and for patients who routinely clench and grind their teeth. It provides a snug fit, which is important in preventing wear on the teeth.

Customization also allows for specific thickness adjustments, reducing jaw pressure and potentially alleviating TMD symptoms, headaches, and sleep apnea.

How Long Do They Last?

Although custom mouthguards maintain their shape, your mouth might change over time. Regular dental check-ups are essential to ensure the mouthguard fits perfectly. If changes in your dental structure occur, your dentist might recommend a new mouthguard for optimal fit and protection.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are extremely competent, friendly and professional. He is very thorough and explains everything very clearly. Finally I feel like I am in good hands when it comes to dental care.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
