Protect Your Teeth With A Mouth Guard
Invest in a mouth guard for better protection during sports and other events. For more information, give us a call.
When it comes to protecting your teeth during sports and other activities, a mouth guard is the solution you need. No matter how careful people may be when playing outside, accidents happen. We can customize a mouth guard to fit your teeth and provide an extra layer of protection.
We will customize the mouth guard so that it fits your teeth properly and doesn't irritate your mouth. A mouth guard is similar to a clear aligner, but consisting of different material that mainly focuses on protecting the teeth. Even though there are dental restoration procedures to help with damage to teeth, we advise patients to keep as many of their natural teeth as possible.
In most contact sports, there is always the chance of an accidental trip or misguided impact to the teeth. In these instances, it helps to have a mouth guard. Along with that, the mouth guard can protect the teeth from biting down too hard during a fall.
The fitting procedure for a mouth guard will not take too long. We will take a mold of the teeth, and have a dental lab create a mouth guard to the measurements. Once it is ready, we will have the patient return to our dental office for the fitting.
During this time, we will go over how to take proper care of the mouth guard. You will need to keep a case with you that you place it in when not using it. If the mouth guard sustains any damage or breaks, call us right away. Our team is here to help.
