The difference is like night and day! A custom-fitted night guard is just that; it’s prepared specifically for your smile and your smile alone.
Custom Nightguards for Teeth Grinding
Store-bought generic nightguards are, well, generic. They are a one-size-fits-all solution that, in the end, may not work very well because the fit isn’t customized for anyone’s smile!
You only get one set of permanent teeth, so investing in a custom nightguard to protect them makes good sense. The forces of teeth grinding can be quite destructive and lead to worn, cracked, or broken teeth.
However, a sturdy nightguard customized for your smile provides a perfect fit and stands up well to the excessive forces caused by teeth grinding. A custom-fitted nightguard is also more comfortable, so there’s a better chance it will end up in your mouth instead of sitting on your nightstand!
Protect Your Smile with Custom Mouth Guards
Along the same lines, we also customize sports mouth guards at our Moorpark, CA dental office. Dental injuries are common with sports activities, and a generic “boil and bite” mouthguard won’t provide the same protection as a mouthguard customized for your smile.
A well-fitting mouthguard is also more likely to end up protecting your teeth than sitting unused in the bottom of your gym bag.
