Stop Teeth Grinding & Dental Damage With a Professionally Made Mouthguard

To have your new mouthguard made, we’ll take impressions that avoid the goopy mess of traditional impressions. Using impressions ensures a perfect fit. Below are two instances in which you might need a custom mouthguard made by our lab partner:

  • Many patients first came to see us because of TMJ pain. Your TMJs (or temporomandibular joints) are located on either side of your head and connect your jaw to your skull. If these joints become inflamed, it can become quite painful to open and close your mouth. Your mouth may even lock into place at times. A custom mouthguard will relieve tension on your TMJs so they can begin to heal. Your jaw will soon feel better.
  • A large number of people grind their teeth in their sleep, usually without even knowing it. If we see signs of teeth grinding at your checkup, we’ll recommend a professional mouthguard that will keep your teeth apart while you sleep. It will prevent the grinding and clinching that can cause damage that requires restorative dentistry to repair.

Take good care of your teeth by getting a Stillwater mouthguard from Lift Dental. Call us today at 651-372-8444 to schedule an appointment.

Common Questions About Mouthguards

Why are mouthguards important?

A well-made mouthguard is your best defense against blows to the mouth, teeth, gums, and jaw. Mouthguards can also alleviate symptoms of teeth grinding, TMJ disorders, and even obstructive sleep apnea.

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.

How are mouthguards made?

For any oral appliance to fit well and work effectively, it needs to be customized to the precise measurements of your mouth. Athletes who buy mass-produced guards from a sporting goods store, for example, will never find one that is sized comfortably or appropriately enough to provide full coverage and protection. We can create a mouthguard that allows you to move, breathe, and communicate easily while keeping your smile safe.
