Preserve Your Complete Smile With an Athletic Mouthguard

Athletes who don’t wear mouth protection are 60 times more likely to suffer dental injuries than those who do, according to the American Dental Association. If you or your child play sports, then you should wear mouth protection if your sport involves:

  • Physical contact between athletes
  • Changes in speed and direction
  • Frequent jumping
  • Objects being hit, thrown, or caught
  • Any combination of what is listed above

Our custom-fit mouthguards outperform store-bought devices. There is simply no comparison to a professionally made mouthguard and a “boil-and-bite” appliance. You deserve better protection, a comfortable fit, and long-lasting protection.

As a bonus, you can get your new mouthguard in a variety of colors to match your team colors or to express your personality. Your mouthguard also can be made in different thicknesses depending on your particular sport.

Get Headache Relief With a Custom Night Guard

Millions of people grind their teeth in their sleep without even knowing it. Routine dental exams often reveal the damage done by this unconscious behavior. Teeth grinding (or bruxism) can cause a number of problems:

  • Wear and tear on your teeth
  • Increased risk of tooth sensitivity and tooth decay
  • Frequent headaches and earaches
  • Jaw pain and stiffness
  • Soreness in your neck and upper back

A professional night guard worn while you sleep creates a barrier to prevent teeth grinding. This kind of mouthguard can save you the time and expense of restorative dentistry and make your daily life less painful.

Mundelein mouthguards will help you maintain a healthy, whole smile. Make an appointment to get yours by calling Michael S. Roessler DDS Cosmetic & Family Dentistry at 847-652-9147. You also can schedule 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.

Can mouthguards help with TMJ disorders?

Yes, and in fact, custom mouthguards are one of the most common, conservative solutions for teeth grinding and other issues related to your jaw joint, or TMJ. Because these oral devices fit over your upper and lower teeth, they keep you from involuntarily clenching and grinding your teeth together while you sleep. This can alleviate the pressure on your jaw, reduce painful symptoms of TMJ disorder, allow the joint to heal naturally, and protect your tooth enamel from damage.

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.
