SPORTS MOUTH GUARD
Sports – they’re all fun and games until someone loses a tooth! Wearing a sports mouth guard is highly important for youngsters and adults involved in many types of sports. Football, baseball, hockey, soccer, and many other sports put players at risk of striking their mouths on other players, equipment, or the ground. If you or your child plays a sport, here’s why you need to come to Contemporary Family Dentistry for a custom sports mouth guard.
Injuries to your mouth, jaw, and teeth don’t just affect the way you look. They can take quite a toll on your wallet. While routine checkups and visits to your dentist’s office won’t break the bank, having to undergo more serious procedures to repair sports-related damage is where the big costs come in. Prevention is always better than cure when it comes to issues with your teeth. Investing in a customized sports mouth guard from Contemporary Family Dentistry can save you considerable money on injuries down the road. The guard will take the brunt of the trauma, not your teeth.
PROTECT YOUR PEARLY WHITES
Losing an adult tooth is a permanent problem. Sure, you can get excellent replacements in the form of bridges, implants, or dentures, but you can never replace your real missing tooth. Similarly, there is no way to re-grow a chipped tooth. You will have to get fillings or tooth bonding to repair the chipped or broken area. You can avoid all of this hassle by protecting your real teeth when playing sports.
Sports mouth guards fit effortlessly over the teeth, reducing the risk of injury by up to 60 percent, according to the American Dental Association. It is an important piece of sports equipment that can prevent tooth cracks, breaks, and losses. Mouth guards can also prevent serious damage to the roots of the teeth, as well as injuries to the jaw and mouth, such as tongue injuries or jawbone fractures. Some studies even suggest that mouth guards reduce the risk of sports-related concussions!
GET THE PERFECT GUARD FOR YOUR MOUTH
Don’t let fear of discomfort prevent you from wearing a sports mouth guard. With a customized, properly fitting guard from your dentist, you’ll hardly feel the device. It will stay in place and protect from injuries, while still allowing you to talk and breathe. Our office uses modern technologies to create molds and imprints of your mouth, so we can make a mouth guard that fits your teeth like a glove. In addition to being more comfortable, custom sports mouth guards do a better job of protecting your teeth, lips, tongue, face, and jaw than off-the-shelf versions.
