Prevent tooth loss from sports-related injuries with a custom mouthguard.
Sports-related injuries are a leading cause of tooth loss, and many of these cases could have been prevented with protective wear. Teeth do not grow back– protect the only set of teeth you have with a custom sports mouthguard.
Sports mouthguards are an appropriate device for athletes of all ages. From little league to professional athletes, anyone can benefit from the use of a custom fit mouthguard.
Custom fit mouthguards provide improved protection and comfort in comparison to over the counter bite-and-fit options. Custom mouthguards are designed specifically for your measurements using dental impressions. A better fit mouthguard helps you or your child stay focused on their performance, not on clenching their jaw to secure the mouthguard. Once in place, a custom mouthguard enables the wearer to drink fluids and communicate with others without needing to be removed. This greatly improves compliance and reduces loss, especially among young athletes.
Receiving a custom mouthguard is quick, easy and painless. Dr. Adams will take a simple mold in our office of your smile to use for your mouthguard. Once fabricated, patients can pick up their mouthguard and it is ready for use immediately. They can also be ordered in fun or team colors.
If you or your child are involved in contact sports or any activity that could endanger your smile, discuss the benefits of a custom sports mouthguard with Dr. Adams.
