Almost anyone! Call our office if you have questions about your unique oral situation.

Are upper and lower mouthguards necessary?

If you wear braces, your dentist will likely advise that you wear both an upper and lower mouthguard. You may also be encouraged to wear a lower mouthguard if you have a dental appliance on your lower jaw (such as a fixed denture or dental bridge) or participate in sports like boxing, wrestling, or mixed martial arts.

How long should you wear a customized mouthguard?

Six months is the approximate time frame a patient should aim to use their mouthguard. After this point, signs of wear and tear will be visible, the material will start to thin, and your level of protection will diminish.

How should a mouthguard be cleaned?

After wearing your mouthguard, be sure to gently brush it with a wet toothbrush before storing it in its ventilated container.
