Protect Your Smile with Customized Mouthguards

As your dental office of choice in Riverside, California, Neal Edwards DDS strives to protect your smile for life. In addition to preventive dental exams and cleanings, tailor-made education, and fluoride treatments, we offer customized mouthguards. Whether you need a bruxism or an athletic mouthguard, you can count on Dr. Neal Edwards and the team. 

Why you may need a mouthguard

Patients with bruxism — habitual grinding of teeth — need a mouth guard to protect their teeth from damage. The chronic grinding and clenching of teeth lead to gradual wear and tear of your teeth, leading to cracks and chips over time. A mouth guard protects your teeth from bruxism by preventing the upper and lower teeth from making contact.

If you participate in high-contact sports, you need a sports mouthguard to protect your teeth and other soft tissues from injury. A sports guard also protects your teeth when participating in high-intense sports like heavy lifting. A custom-fitted mouthguard safeguards your teeth from fractures or falling out and also protects you from more severe injuries like jaw fractures and concussions. 

Our customized mouthguards

All dental guards aren’t created the same. There are generic mouthguards, “boil and bite” mouthguards, and custom-designed mouthguards created by our dental clinic. While all mouthpieces offer some form of protection, they differ in cost, comfort, and effectiveness. 

Dr. Neal Edwards recommends custom mouthguards because of their superiority in protecting your smile. Customized dental guards are made after taking your bite impressions, resulting in appliances that fit comfortably and offer optimal protection. 

Besides comfort, patients fall in love with our custom mouthguards because they are easy to maintain and made using durable materials. “Off-the-shelf” dental guards may be cheap, but they offer sub-optimal protection and don’t fit well. They also don’t last long, requiring frequent replacements.
