Cosmetic Dentistry – Trays

Benefits of Custom-Fit Dentistry Trays

One way of protecting your smile is by investing in custom-fit dentistry trays. In general, there are two main types of dentistry trays that you can order: mouth guards and whitening trays. While it’s possible to buy over-the-counter trays, they don’t typically fit well and can lead to a number of problems. Here are a few benefits that come with ordering custom-fit dentistry trays from your dentist.

Teeth Whitening

There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening systems, and most of these kits come with their own teeth whitening

trays. Unfortunately, the trays don’t always fit properly, which causes the whitening gel to leak out. This can lead to gum irritation and less effective treatment than if you get a properly fitting tray from your dentist.

Custom Mouth Guards

Custom mouth guards are important for a number of reasons. First of all, mouth guards are designed to protect your teeth from damage, and the ones that you buy from the store aren’t custom fit for your mouth. The result is an ill-fitting mouth guard that can slide out of place while you’re sleeping. This not only doesn’t protect your teeth, but it also becomes a choking hazard. To make a custom-fit mouth guard, your dentist takes impressions of your teeth so that it fits your bite perfectly.

Remember that mouth guard isn’t just used to protect your teeth while you’re sleeping. They’re also helpful for people who play contact sports such as football, protecting the teeth from impact damage. They can also be worn by both adults and kids. While most mouth guards only go over the top row of teeth, you can have them custom made to go over both.
