Night/Mouth Guards Created for Patients of All Ages by Your Family and Pediatric Dentist in Trumbull
Custom-fitted mouth protectors are individually designed and made in a dental office or a professional laboratory based on your dentist's instructions.
Who Needs a MouthGuard/NightGuard?
Mouth guards should be used by anyone -- both children and adults -- who play contact sports such as football, boxing, soccer, ice hockey, basketball, lacrosse, and field hockey. However, even those participating in non-contact sports (for example, gymnastics) and any recreational activity (for example, skateboarding, mountain biking) that might pose a risk of injury to the mouth would benefit from wearing a protective mouth guard.
First, your Trumbull family and pediatric dentist will make an impression of your teeth and a mouth guard is then molded over the model using a special material, which provides the most comfort and protection.
If you grind your teeth at night, a special mouth guard-type of the dental appliance -- may be created to prevent tooth damage. This one is harder material that you grind against to protect your teeth from additional wear.
Give Dr. Marmolejos a call if you're interested in purchasing a custom-made mouth guard for your child during their sports season or if you're experiencing jaw pain due to bruxism. Reach our office at (203) 261-2880 to learn more and schedule your consultation today!
