Custom mouthguards provide the best defense against mouth injuries sustained by athletes during practices and games. A study published in 2007 by the ADA showed that athletic activity without a mouthguard nearly doubled the risk of mouth trauma. And many people are surprised to learn that basketball produces more dental trauma than any other sport! So before you send your athlete out onto the field or court, make sure their teeth are protected.
We offer personalized adult and youth mouthguards in a variety of colors and sizes. Over-the-counter mouthguards provide reasonable protection if they’re ADA certified. But when you consider the value of your smile, a custom mouthguard with an exact fit is a sensible investment. And mouth injuries often lead to extensive treatment and expense. Our mouthguards are designed for use during any contact sport.
We also offer mouthguards for our younger patients who are sporting braces. We can’t change the need for orthodontic treatment, but we can provide athletic youngsters a customized designer mouthguard that fits snuggly over their braces.
Our team looks forward to reviewing the best strategy for protecting your family’s teeth during athletic activities. Don’t let an unfortunate accident spoil the game!
