Protect Your Smile
With mouthguards, there are going to be two uses for it. One is going to be in athletics. If you're having a contact or a partially contact sport, where there's a risk where you might for you to crack your tooth or chip your tooth or get your tooth knocked out sometimes even. So those mouthguards are going to help prevent these catastrophic injuries for patients for sure. So that's one important use of the mouthguards. Another use is, if with night guards, which is similar to a mouthguard. With a night guard, some patients just tend to grind their teeth really hard together. Some do it in the daytime, some at night, but either way that can be very stressful on your enamel on your teeth. So the night guards and the mouthguards will allow us to protect that enamel on your teeth and also provide some relief for your muscles, your jaw muscles, and your jaw joints. So the night guards are very important for a lot of our patients, especially after we do an implant or a bridge or a restoration. To protect that investment, we recommend the night guard for patients.
Our mouthguards will:
- Provide Proper Protection for Your Sport – We’ll design your mouthguard based on the sport you’re going to play, so the bulk and thickness will offer the right level of protection.
- Offer the Comfort of a Custom Fit – Since it’s designed just for you, a custom mouthguard won’t restrict your movement or breathing the way an off-the-shelf mouthguard can.
- Withstand Wear and Tear – Custom athletic mouthguards are made from highly durable materials, so they’ll hold up better than store-bought mouthguards.
Custom-Fit Mouthguards Offer Many Advantages
The most common type of mouthguard is the “boil-and-bite” style sold at athletic supply stores or drugstores. While any mouthguard is better than no mouthguard, those kinds of mouthguards do not offer the same level of protection you’ll get from a mouthguard designed just for you using precise measurements of your mouth.
There are plenty of ways you can injure your teeth and mouth playing sports. Our custom athletic mouthguards aim to prevent:
- Broken teeth
- Lost teeth
- Soft tissue injuries to the gums, cheeks, lips, and tongue
