Keep Your Smile Safe With a Mouthguard

You only have one smile, so it’s a good idea to take the best care of it you can. Although Dr. Bickler can repair just about any kind of dental damage, there’s no need to put your smile at risk if you don’t have to. That’s why we offer the following types of mouthguards for our patients:

  • Athletic Mouthguard – The American Dental Association says that athletes who don’t wear mouth protection are 60 times more likely to suffer a dental injury than those who do. Don’t risk your smile! If you play a sport that requires contact with other players, frequent changes in direction, or a flying puck or ball, then you need an athletic mouthguard for protection. Unlike a store-bought guard, a custom-made one fits your mouth perfectly so it won’t slip out during play.
  • Bruxism (Teeth Grinding) Mouthguard – Many people grind their teeth in their sleep without knowing it. We always check for signs of teeth grinding at your regular checkups. If we find any, we’ll recommend you get a bruxism mouthguard that will keep your teeth apart and help you avoid the need for restorative dental care.

Give your smile the protection it deserves with Salem mouthguards. Call Bickler Dentistry today at 503-647-4645 to get yours. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Mouthguards

Why are mouthguards important?

The most common reason to wear a mouthguard is to protect your teeth and gums while playing sports. Whether you’re participating in a contact sport or not, 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 and TMJ disorders.

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.

Which mouthguards work best?

The best mouthguard is one made especially for your or your child’s mouth. A professionally made mouthguard will outperform a store-bought “boil-and-bite” mouthguard because it will fit better, provide superior protection, and last longer. At Bickler Dentistry, we can have athletic mouthguards made, as well as mouthguards for TMJ pain.
