Sporting a mouth guard can be a good deterrent to dental harm and emergency visits to the dentist’s office, but to be most powerful, oral mouth guards need to be synced exactly to the task you’ll be donning them for. All dental mouth guards that you can purchase from our practice are protective, comfortable and strong devices, and Dr. Stephen Kwitnicki offers one-of-a-kind modifications depending on what you need:

Here are several kinds of mouth guards you can choose from:

Stock mouth guards
This kind of mouth guard is ready to use as soon as possible after purchase, but its pre-developed shape is perhaps ill-suited to your mouth. They are usually bulky and hard to wear.

Boil-and-bite mouth guards
These mouth guards can be purchased at sports stores and supermarkets, and they are shaped to your mouth after you boil them and bite down on them, hence their name. While these do offer a better fit than some stock mouth protectors, there are much better alternatives available to you.

Custom-made mouth guards
Custom-made mouth guards are made personally for your mouth’s shape, so their fit and comfort is greater than any other type of mouth guard. Because they’re designed to your pearly whites and gums, they also offer superior protection against dental trauma. This is a more expensive option than traditional mouth guards, but you could keep money in the long run by defending your teeth.

Night guards
Night guards are another type of mouth guard, and they’re shaped to protect your pearly whites from grinding as you sleep. This could be an awesome option for you if you clench your chompers during sleep or arise with a throbbing jaw.

There you have it: four different kinds of mouth guards you can pick from. If you’d like more data about the oral cavity guards we offer Stephen Kwitnicki, DDS patients in Union, New Jersey, please don’t hesitate to call 908-516-2906 now.
