Keep Your Smile in One Piece With a Custom Mouthguard

Did you know that the American Dental Association cautions that athletes who don’t wear mouth protection are 60 times more likely to experience a dental injury than those who do? That’s a lot of smiles that are in jeopardy, both young and old.

Also, did you know that teeth grinding is a big cause of tooth enamel damage? It can lead to increased sensitivity to heat and cold as well as tooth decay. This damage could require restorative dentistry in order to repair it.

Because of these threats to your smile, we provide custom mouthguards to help you protect your pearly whites. We offer two types of mouthguards:

  • Athletic Mouthguards – Imagine playing softball in your local league when a ground ball bounces the wrong way and hits you in the mouth. Without the proper protection, you could lose a tooth. You should wear a mouthguard for any sport or activity that involves potential contact with other players or where there’s a flying ball, puck, or disc. A professional mouthguard will fit better, protect better, and last longer than one bought off the shelf.
  • Bruxism (Teeth Grinding) Mouthguards – Many people grind their teeth in their sleep without even knowing it. That’s why we always check for signs of bruxism at your dental cleanings and exams. It’s important to stop this destructive habit before it has the chance to cause real damage to your teeth. A mouthguard will keep your teeth apart while you sleep and help you avoid bigger problems.
