Do you or your child play contact sports? It is estimated that 5 million teeth will be knocked out due to sports in this year alone. Protect your teeth and your child’s teeth from injury with a custom mouth guard. According to the American Dental Association, sports mouth guards can prevent over 200,000 injuries.
Mouth guards offer multiple benefits to patients of all ages, such as:
- A secure and stable fit
- Protection from tooth loss
- A reduced chance of concussion
- Protection of dental work from damage
The “boil and bite” mouth guards found in stores don’t offer a custom-fit like professional mouth guards. Without a perfect fit, over-the-counter mouth guards can fall out or make it more difficult to speak with them on. Professional mouth guards can prevent patients from resorting to restorative solutions later in life. Although our team does offer tooth bonding for chipped teeth and dental implants for missing teeth, we aim to protect healthy natural teeth.
Sports Mouthguards: What to Expect
Dr. Raymond Ribitch will work with you or your child to create a sports mouth guard that fits comfortably. He will take a mold of teeth to craft the final mouth guard. Ensure that the mouth guard is cleaned regularly with an antibacterial solution and thoroughly cleaned once a month. Cleaning the mouth guard prevents bacteria from forming and keeps it fresh for regular use.
