Custom Mouth Guards
It is always better to take care of your teeth so that you can protect them from any injury. Sports are primarily responsible for many teeth-related injuries. You never know when a ball may hit your face or somebody may accidentally elbow your jaw. Situations like these may result in fracturing of your teeth, ultimately cracking or chipping them. To avoid these consequences, you must invest in a high-quality mouthguard.
A mouthguard, as the name suggests, is a device that protects your teeth and gums from any injury or trauma. Although a lot of mouthguards are available at most medical stores, it is wiser to choose custom-made mouthguards.
Wearing something that fits on the structure of your mouth is better as you don’t face any irritation or tightness caused by traditionally-made guards. The process of custom-making mouthguards involves making a model of your teeth and then moulding the mouthguard material around the dental model to ensure a close and comfortable fit.
Benefits of Mouthguards
Apart from preventing dental injury or trauma, custom mouthguards can benefit you in other ways too.
- Mouthguards act as a cushion to redistribute the force of an impact more evenly.
- If you have a big horizontal distance between the upper and lower teeth, you are more prone to fractures during contact sports. But wearing a
- sports mouthguard prevents these injuries as well.
If you have a dental prosthesis like braces, crowns, veneers, bridges, etc., wearing a mouthguard will protect the work from any impact too.
Whether you are a seasoned athlete or a person who has just started playing contact sports, wearing a mouthguard is a must. So, see our dentists to get a personalized mouthguard today.
