When it comes to minimizing the risk of broken teeth or injuries to the lips, tongue, face, or jaw, custom mouthguards are the most effective option available. With so many over-the-counter and boil-and-bite mouthguards readily available, it can be difficult to find something that is both comfortable and safe. That’s why our dentist offers custom-fitted atheltic mouthguards for Schaumburg, IL dental patients. These appliances provide the most comfort and protection because they are created specifically for you.

The Mouthguard Process

Custom-fitted, professionally-made mouthguards are created based on molds of your own teeth. Dr. Dabah will make an impression of your teeth, and the mouthguard will be created by a dental technician. In addition to being more comfortable than store-bought options, custom mouthguards are also more durable because they are made of stronger materials. Custom mouthguards also offer more protection than their stock or boil-and-bite counterparts that only cover the top row of teeth; custom mouthguards are designed to cover and protect each individual tooth.

Why Do I Need a Mouthguard?

Wearing a mouthguard is an important precaution for athletes of all ages and abilities, helping to protect against chipped or broken teeth, root and bone damage, and tooth loss. In addition to protecting teeth, mouthguards have proven effective in preventing serious injuries like jaw fractures, neck injuries, and concussions.
