You only get one set of permanent teeth, so you need to make sure you protect them at all cost. At Dr. Patty Miami, we create custom mouth guards to help protect your beautiful smile from sports injuries and teeth grinding. Your mouth or night guard will be individually designed and crafted to fit your mouth perfectly and will help eliminate the pain associated with teeth grinding and jaw clenching.
Types Of Mouthguards
A mouthguard is not something people necessarily like to wear. Some of them feel bulky and ill-fitted, while others can have an off-putting odor or taste. But they are an important tool for protecting your teeth, especially if you play contact sports or clench your teeth at night.
There are many mouth guards in the market, but most dentists wouldn’t recommend them. Unfortunately, ready-made mouthguards are not custom-fitted, so they are uncomfortable and may not be as effective. Another popular option are mouth-formed guards, which can be customized by heating in water and then biting it. Overall, these fit better than ready-made protectors, but they can harden over time and lose comfort and flexibility.
Custom-made mouthguards are the best option for protecting against injury and tooth wear. At Dr. Patty Miami, each sports or night guard is made to fit at a professional lab using a precise impression of your teeth.
When you visit us for a night guard, a cosmetic dentist will examine your teeth and bite to determine your tooth grinding pattern. Depending on which teeth are affected, we can custom-create a full night guard that covers the entire arch or a smaller one that fits over a few teeth only.

Sports Mouth Guards
It’s all fun and games until someone knocks out a tooth. Up to 40 percent of sports injuries involve the face, so protecting your teeth while playing sports is incredibly important. The sports guards at Dr. Patty Miami can be completely personalized. After taking an impression of your teeth to achieve the most accurate fit, you can choose what colors you want or add a design to it. Your sports guard will be made from a soft material sspecially designed to absorb shock and hard impact.
Teeth grinding and clenching are important contributing factors to headaches, neck and ear pain, and jaw tension. But many people don’t even realize they grind their teeth until someone points it out or they notice their teeth look worn down. These are some signs you may be grinding or clenching your teeth at night:
- Your teeth seem flattened or worn down
- You wake up with jaw, neck, or face pain
- You have regular headaches
- Your jaw feels tired or stiff
- You can’t seem to get a good night’s sleep
Luckily, night guards are an affordable, non-invasive solution. When used properly, nearly 90% of clients have noticed that their headache symptoms have disappeared. At Dr. Patty Miami, we custom-make each night guard with high-quality materials and cutting-edge technology. Unlike store-bought mouthguards that take up a lot of space in your mouth, we can customize night guards to cover anywhere from 2 teeth, 8 teeth, or the entire arch. At night, you simply pop in your guard, and it keeps your teeth from scraping against each other.
