Mouth guards are very important for protecting an athlete’s teeth when playing a contact sport. Visit Lynn Creek Dental Care to receive a custom-fitted mouth guard and keep your teeth safe from harm.
A mouth guard refers to an oral appliance that is worn over the teeth to keep them protected from injury. When a person plays a contact sport, there is always the risk that they might take a serious blow to the mouth. This could result in serious dental damage that can cause a number of oral health problems. Wearing a properly fitted and well-designed mouth guard will make it much less likely for this to occur. Our dental practice is proud to provide protective mouth guards for athletes of all ages and skill levels. Some of the injuries that can be prevented through the use of an athletic mouth guard include:
A mouth guard from us will be custom-designed based on impressions of your teeth. This ensures that the optimal fit is achieved and that the patient receives the highest levels of comfort and protection. By using the highest quality materials available, our mouth guards are incredibly durable, even with frequent use. Our mouth guards also feel extremely comfortable, and they should not interfere with the user’s regular breathing or speaking.
In order to receive a custom-fitted mouth guard, a patient must make at least two visits to our practice. The first visit involves us taking impressions of the patient’s teeth. The impressions will be forwarded to a dental laboratory so that the custom mouth guards can be built. Once the device is ready, the patient will return for a follow-up visit to pick it up and have it fitted. They should then begin using the mouth guard when playing any contact sport. Our mouth guards are suitable for adult and child athletes of any age or skill level. They are great for virtually any discipline in which a person might take a hard hit to their mouth.
In addition to athletic mouth guards, Lynn Creek Dental Care also offers protective night guards for the treatment of bruxism. This is a condition that causes a person to unknowingly clench and grind their teeth while they sleep. This problem can lead to tooth fractures, jaw pain, tension headaches and more. Wearing protective night guards to sleep can alleviate these issues. Our night guards are also custom-designed, and they feel quite comfortable when worn. Most patients who use them report that they achieve a much better night of sleep as a result.
