Protect your teeth with a custom-fit mouthguard! At Maitland Ave Smile Co., we offer custom-made mouthguards in our Altamonte Springs, FL dentist office.
Mouthguards are a simple solution to help protect your teeth during physical activity. Custom-made mouthguards fit snugly and comfortably over the teeth, offering an extra layer of protection. They can reduce stress on your teeth and reduce injury to your oral cavity and jaw. Patients of all ages can benefit from custom mouthguards.
Why Choose Custom Mouthguards?
For children and adults who play sports, custom-made mouthguards can help protect teeth and reduce the risk of tooth loss and tooth damage. Custom mouthguards can be designed to fit securely over teeth AND any oral appliances or braces. This offers superior protection versus retail store options. Store-bought mouthguards come in standard sizes. They may not fit correctly, causing slippage and minimal protection against sport related dental injuries. Most patients will find that a custom fit sports mouthguard is more comfortable because it fits securely around teeth, allowing for better focus on the field.
- The jaw is protected.
- Properly fitted mouthguards reduce cuts and irritation to the soft tissue in the mouth.
- An extra level of support for the teeth.
- Absorbs shock vibration from physical contact.

You will need to visit our office for a quick dental exam and digital impressions for your teeth. Your dentist will take molds of your teeth and create a custom mouthguard that will fit comfortably over your teeth. We make sure that each one we create does not irritate the soft tissues and gums in your mouth. Once fabricated, we will have you come back in to check the size and fit of your new mouthguard to ensure a custom fit.
Mouthguards & Night Guards for Teeth Grinding
For patients who grind their teeth or have been diagnosed with a TMJ disorder, we may recommend the use of a night guard. Night guards are similar to mouthguards and are typically worn only at night to prevent your teeth from grinding and clenching. A night guard allows the jaw muscles to relax and minimize muscle tension and stress on the teeth.
Creating a custom night guard is similar to the process of creating a mouthguard. Dental impressions are taken and sent to a dental lab for fabrication. The goal is to create a comfortable, secure, and custom fit that will alleviate the symptoms.
