Avoid Injury to Stay on the Field or the Court
Athletes play sports for a lot of reasons, but it is hard to keep playing while you are recovering from an injury. This includes dental injuries, which are 60 times more likely when you don’t wear a mouthguard while you practice and compete.
You have your choice of a variety of mouthguards, but the kinds you will find in stores can be bulky and uncomfortable. They also don’t provide the same level of protection as custom-made athletic mouthguards, according to the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. That also is why we are happy to make mouthguards as part of our general dentistry.
Don’t Grind Away Your Oral Health
Accidents while playing sports can lead to broken and lost teeth, but that is not the only way to physically damage your smile. Millions of people clench and grind their teeth, often while sleeping. This can lead to TMJ problems, which we can treat by making a special mouthguard for you to use.
These mouthguards create a barrier between your top and bottom teeth. This can stop you from damaging your enamel. It also can save you from jaw pain, headaches and earaches, jaw stiffness, and other problems related to TMJ disorders.
