About Mouth Guards
A custom mouth guard can be made by general dentist, Dr. Camelia Cooper at Sweet Tooth Dental Loft in Frisco, TX for patients who play sports and patients who grind the teeth at night. For sports, a mouth guard will reduce the patient's chance of getting a concussion, it will protect the jaw and soft tissue, it will cushion any impact against the teeth, and it will prevent neck and jaw injuries. Teeth grinding (bruxism) and jaw clenching at night cause about 10 - 15% of adults to wake up with headaches, tooth pain, jaw pain, and swelling. A custom mouth guard can be created for sports or night, depending on the patients needs, but a mouth guard fitted by Dr. Cooper will be more comfortable and protective than a mouth guard that is bought over-the-counter. A high quality, custom fit mouth guard can help patients protect themselves from more serious and expensive dental problems.

What to Expect
Once the patient decides to get a mouth guard, they will schedule an appointment with Dr. Cooper at Sweet Tooth Dental Loft to have impressions of the upper and lower teeth made. The impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where a custom-fit mouth guard will be crafted for the patient. Once the mouth guard is returned to Sweet Tooth Dental Loft, the patient will come in to have their mouth guard fitted by Dr. Cooper.
The mouth guard can last for several years with proper home care. The patient should clean the mouth guard before and after each use. Depending on the type of material used when making the mouth guard, Dr. Cooper will give the patient more specific care instructions. Patients should bring their mouth guard to all future dental appointments at Sweet Tooth Dental Loft so Dr. Cooper can check for general wear and decide when it needs to be replaced.
