Teeth and mouth injuries are common in sports players all year round, regardless of what sport you play. Your Las Vegas dentist, Dr. Paul VreNon at Desert Breeze Dental can create a custom-made mouth guard that protects the teeth from trauma and injuries that can occur while participating in a variety of sports activities.
Why Should I Invest in a Dentist Prescribed Custom-made Mouth Guard?
According to the National Institute of Health, the face is often the most exposed part of the body during sporting endeavors. A mouth guard protects the teeth and limits the risk of damage from traumatic impact and unconscious grinding. A mouth guard also protects the gums and other soft tissues in the mouth from cuts and tears, reduces the chance of TMJ trauma and jaw fractures, and may even reduce the chance of concussion from certain types of impacts. A properly fitted mouth guard can help to avoid costly dental procedures and the added discomfort and inconvenience of having to undergo extensive treatment.
Mouth guards that are available for over-the-counter purchase will provide slight protection, but will not provide the same level of protection or customized fit of custom-made mouth guard. Boil-and-bite mouth guards are softened in boiling water and then molded to the mouth, but the internal layer can easily thin out, which can then lead to inadequate protection. Stock mouth guards are ready-to-wear but can easily become loose and oftentimes pop out. Both types of mouth guards are also more bulky and less comfortable than custom-fitted models.
A Customized Fit with Flair
Your Las Vegas dentist and team at Desert Breeze Dental will take custom impressions that fit your teeth and mouth precisely in order to create a durable, comfortable mouth guard to provide optimal protection. You can also express pride for your favorite sports team and/or alma mater by getting a mouth guard to match your favorite team’s colors!
Protecting your mouth and jaw with a custom-fitted sports mouth guard is well worth the expense when compared to other costly protective athletic gear. If you’re playing football, would you forgo wearing a helmet? Of course not. Protecting your whole body, including your mouth, is essential to staying healthy and injury-free.
