What is a mouth guard?

Mouthguards, often referred to as occlusal or sports mouthguards, are protective devices that cover the teeth and gums. They are designed to prevent injury or damage, especially for those suffering from bruxism (teeth grinding) or athletes involved in contact sports.

What happens if I need a custom mouth guard?

At Mission Peak Dental, under the expert guidance of Dr. Aparna Borole and Dr. Audrey Duong Ta, we ensure that every mouthguard is tailored to fit perfectly. Store-bought guards might not offer the comfort and protection of our custom-fitted ones. We utilize advanced technology, coupled with detailed molds of your teeth, to create a protective shield that's both snug and comfortable.

How Do I Care for My Mouth Guard?

Caring for your mouthguard is essential to ensure its longevity and effectiveness. It's recommended to rinse it after each use and store it in a protective case. Regular check-ups at our Fremont office can also help in assessing the wear and tear, ensuring optimal protection at all times.

What are the advantages of wearing a mouth guard?

A mouthguard offers numerous benefits. For sportspersons, it acts as a shield, protecting teeth and gums from potential blows or impacts. For those who clench or grind their teeth at night, an occlusal mouthguard provides relief from potential jaw pain and prevents tooth damage.

Are there side effects of wearing a mouth guard?

A properly fitted mouthguard from Mission Peak Dental should cause no side effects. However, if you feel any discomfort, it's crucial to consult with Dr. Aparna Borole or Dr. Audrey Duong Ta immediately.

How long do mouth guards last?

The longevity of a mouthguard depends on its usage and the material it's made from. With proper care, it can last a long time, but regular check-ups at our clinic are recommended to assess its condition.

Can I wear a mouth guard if I have braces or dental implants?

Yes, you can! In fact, it's even more crucial to protect your investment. Our custom-fitted mouthguards are designed to accommodate braces, dental implants, crowns, dentures, and other dental procedures.
