Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between store-bought mouth guards and the custom-made ones from Coastal Dental?

Store-bought mouth guards typically come in one-size-fits-all or boil-and-bite varieties. While they may offer some level of protection, they often don’t fit perfectly. Custom-made mouth guards from Coastal Dental are crafted based on precise impressions of your teeth, ensuring a snug, comfortable fit, superior protection, and durability. The better the fit, the more effective the protection.

How long do custom mouth guards last?

With proper care, custom mouth guards can last several years. However, the exact duration can vary based on factors like the frequency of use, material wear, and changes in the structure of your mouth. It’s crucial to inspect your mouth guard regularly and bring it to your dental checkups to ensure it remains in optimal condition.

Can mouth guards help with snoring or sleep apnea?

While the mouth guards we primarily craft are for teeth protection and addressing bruxism or TMJ issues, there are specialised dental devices for snoring and sleep apnea. If you have concerns related to sleep disturbances, please discuss them with us, and we can guide you on the appropriate solutions or referrals.

How should I clean and store my mouth guard?

Rinse your mouth guard with cool water or a mouth rinse after each use. Occasionally, you can clean it with mild soap and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Always store your mouth guard in its provided ventilated container, keeping it dry and free from bacteria. Avoid exposing it to extreme heat to prevent warping.

My child is getting into sports. When is the right time for them to get a mouth guard?

As soon as your child starts engaging in any contact sports or activities with potential risks to their oral health, it’s a good time to consider a mouth guard. Remember, children’s mouths grow and change, so their mouth guards might need more frequent updating to ensure a proper fit.

Protecting your smile is always worth the effort. Whether you’re a sports enthusiast, a nighttime teeth grinder, or seeking relief from TMJ symptoms, Coastal Dental is here to guide and assist. Should you have any further questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out. Your safety and comfort are our utmost priorities.
