Get Custom Athletic Mouthguards at Creekside Family Dental
If you are frequently participating in organized sports, you should consider getting a custom mouthguard. Dental injuries are the most common type of orofacial injury that occurs while playing sports, & mouthguards are an effective way to protect your teeth, gums, lips & jaw. If your children are playing organized sports, a mouthguard is a protective device & also a great cost saver, because it will reduce your need for costly dental surgery after an injury.
Though mouthguards may seem obvious & necessary for high-contact sports like football & boxing, you should also consider getting a mouthguard if you play any other type of sport, even those that aren’t high-contact.
Research has shown that athletes are 60 times more likely to suffer dental injuries if they aren’t wearing a mouthguard, & if you experience trauma to your face, you will be very glad you have one. All it takes is one slip of the elbow, one wrongly-placed foot, or one glance away from the ball.
Our team at Creekside Family Dental is committed to doing everything we can to keep you & your family safe from dental injury. We produce custom mouthguards for both adults & children & are happy to explain the different options available.
Some people choose to buy generic mouthguards because they are less expensive. Everyone has a different set of teeth, & a generic mouth guard may be effective for some but ineffective for others. Because they do not fit as well over your teeth, they offer less protection.
In addition, they are usually less comfortable & make it more difficult to talk or breathe through your mouth. Our custom mouthguards will fit securely over your teeth protecting you from injuries. They are also extremely durable, so you’ll know your mouthguard will last for many seasons to come.
