Your dentist can recommend Mouthguards to protect your teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue from damage or injury. At My Miami Lakes Dentist, Dr. Lizette Garcia regularly prescribes this dental appliance to patients who clench or grind their teeth, especially while sleeping. Mouthguards are also worn by those with high fall risk in contact sports and activities.


Let our team help you with all your dental needs. 

Why You May Need Mouthguards?

When you visit your dentist in Miami Lakes for a mouthguard, you will be investing in preventing and addressing oral discomfort. These appliances serve different purposes for different people and work best when worn as per your dentist’s instructions.

Some of the common reasons for wearing a mouthguard are as follows:

  • Prevent Sports Injuries: Putting on your Mouthguards can help reduce the potential risks of dental sports injuries. The dental appliance is regularly worn by wrestling, basketball, volleyball, and hockey players.
  • TMJD: Using the right mouthguard can help prevent teeth grinding and clenching. TMJD patients suffer from inflamed jaw muscles due to teeth grinding and clenching.
  • Teeth Grinding: The appliance can help protect your teeth from getting chipped due to bruxism or grinding when sleeping.
  • Sleep Apnea: A mouthguard can help push your lower jaw and tongue forward to keep the airway open, preventing breathing issues while sleeping.

Importance of Custom Mouthguards

Different types of mouthguards protect teeth and oral health in different scenarios. We specialize in providing custom-made mouthguards after taking your teeth mold. The appliance will then be created for your teeth and mouth’s structure.
Some of the key features of these mouthguards are as follows:

  • A custom-made mouth guard offers a far greater fit than a mass-produced boil and bite or stock mouth guard.
  • Your dentist-made Mouthguards are much more comfortable and cannot get easily dislodged while sleeping.
  • If you snore or suffer from sleep apnea or bruxism, you should choose a custom-made mouth guard.
