3 Ways A Custom Mouthguard Can Benefit You! [BLOG]

Mouthguards 2 San Antonio, TX | Cosmetic Dental Associates

At Cosmetic Dental Associates, we do so much more than just clean your mouth and treat problems with your teeth and gums.

In fact, we offer services that can improve your life in ways you’ve probably never considered!

Today, we’re telling you about how one oral appliance made in our San Antonio, TX dental office can be used to treat very different problems.

Here are three unique ways a custom mouthguard from Cosmetic Dental Associates can benefit your life!

*Your Athletic Performance Can Improve*

If you’re an athlete, you’re probably well-informed about the importance of a mouthguard to keep your teeth safe from injury.

What you might be less aware of is the need for customization for the best protection.

Boil-and-bite guards from a store won’t cut it. You still can’t rely on a perfect, comfortable fit.

Our athletic mouthguards, however, give you full coverage so that your only concern during a game is the game itself!

You’ll be able to stay focused on your surroundings and can improve your athletic performance as a result.

*You’ll Get More Sleep*

Sleep apnea is a condition that you may not even know you have because it happens, you guessed it, while you sleep. It’s a vicious, repetitive cycle where your airways become blocked and then open back up all throughout the night. You could endure these brief episodes hundreds of time a night and not remember it, so here are a few other signs to look for:

*Daily exhaustion


*Moodiness or depression

*Weight gain

*Loud, persistent snoring

If you don’t want to hassle with an uncomfortable, noisy CPAP machine to treat your sleep apnea, you could opt for a custom mouthguard instead. It will fit comfortably and keep your airways open while you sleep so you can get some much-needed, uninterrupted rest!

*You’ll Feel & Look Better*

Two other closely-related problems your smile and oral health can face are TMJ disorder (TMD) and bruxism (teeth grinding).

Whether TMD causes the bruxism, or the bruxism triggered your TMD, a custom mouthguard from Dr. Moore may be the key to alleviating your painful symptoms, such as:

*Frequent migraines and headaches

*Earache pain

*Jaw soreness

*Worn down or damaged teeth

*Muscle aches and tension in your face, shoulders, or neck

*Painful chewing or clicking sounds while chewing


The reason you might experience these distracting symptoms is because of the intense stress and tension you’re creating as a result of the constant, often involuntary, clenching and grinding of your teeth or misalignment of your jaw joint.

What a mouthguard can do is relieve that pressure by keeping your lower and upper teeth from touching while you sleep. This will help you feel better, and by stopping the teeth grinding, make your smile look better!

Over time, your jaw can even heal itself!

You wouldn’t believe the difference just one quality, custom mouthguard can make for your quality of life. Whether you’re an athlete, a long-suffering victim of sleep apnea, or on the verge of a dental problem, or insanity, because of the chronic pain of TMJ disorder, a mouthguard from San Antonio, TX dentist, Dr. Moore, could be the secret to a healthier, happier life!
