Dental Mouth Guards

Prevention is better than cure. This saying holds true for your dental health as well. At the office of Greenwich Smiles, we strive to offer a wide variety of preventive treatments to help preserve your oral health. One of these comes in the form of custom dental mouth guards.

What is a dental mouth guard?

A mouth guard is an oral appliance that can be worn over the teeth. It protects the teeth against blows and injuries during contact sports and activities. Wearing a mouth guard can help in preventing cracks, chips and fractures to the teeth and can also protect the lips, inner cheeks, gums and even the lower jaw.

Mouth guards are also used to control the effects of bruxism. Bruxism is a condition characterized by the clenching and grinding of one’s teeth, especially while sleeping. The grinding forces can cause damage to the teeth and jaw. Wearing a night guard while sleeping can help prevent this damage.

Why custom mouth guards?

Over-the-counter mouth guards available at sports stores and pharmacies are made in standard sizes and can be uncomfortable to wear. Mouth guards of the boil and bite variety can also lose their fit over time and do not offer the best protection.

A custom dental mouth guard is made according to your fit by taking impressions of the teeth. Our custom-made mouth guards are made using high-quality, lightweight material. They are comfortable to wear and do not interfere with your breathing and speaking. Since they are made to your exact fit, they do not slip or loosen. Wearing a professionally made custom mouth guard can help you prevent injuries and combat the side effects of bruxism.

Our Happy Patients

"Dr. Tramposch is so lovely. Since moving to the area a year ago, I pushed off finding a local dentist and would drive hours out of the way to go to the one I felt comfortable with. When my wisdom teeth started to grow in a few months ago, I was in a great deal of pain. I called Dr. Tramposch's office in hopes of getting an appointment. Although he was booked for the day, he managed to squeeze me in and did everything he could to ensure I didn't leave the office in pain. He continued to call me and check in on how I was doing for up to two weeks after. I can say I've found my new local/favorite dentist office that I truly enjoy going to."

"My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Tramposch for close to 15 years, and he also takes care of our 3 kids' dental needs. He is consistently voted a top dentist by his peer group and has referred me to equally competent specialists for any issues related to wisdom teeth, etc. Dr. T is very flexible, patient, and always works well with the insurance companies to ensure that we are reimbursed properly. We never have to wait, and he deals expertly with any issues that arise. He also does a great job with our 5 year old son who is afraid to have his teeth cleaned. Most of all, he and his staff are very pleasant and great to visit twice a year. Highly recommend!"

"I love Dr. Tramposch!! He is professional but fun, especially with our daughter and always very kind. Every time I go there he always puts me at ease and listens to my concerns. He is very thorough and takes his time when addressing what the next step should be (if any) and answers my questions in ways that I can understand. I always leave feeling taken care of, he is a great dentist. His new dental assistant Vira is so delicate with cleaning my sensitive teeth! And Diana is such a sweet girl, always cordial on the phone. I recommend this practice a million times over!"
