Playing sports and being active is great for people of all ages, from children to adults. However, time on the court or field means a greater risk of damaged teeth. In order to protect smiles in North Hollywood, CA, we suggest receiving a custom-made athletic mouthguard.
The Benefits of a Custom Mouthguard
While you can purchase a boil-and-bite guard at any sporting goods store, these options don’t fit as comfortably and accurately as a custom-made option. A one-size-fits-all mouthguard won’t provide the same level of protection, increasing the risk of teeth becoming chipped, cracked, or even knocked-out. Which would mean a visit to the dentist to address the issue and prevent complications, such as decay or infection. Instead of placing your smile at risk, talk to our team about a possible custom-made solution.
Digitally Designed Guards
How do we create them? we use digital technology, such as intraoral cameras, digital x-rays, and 3D imaging, to create an oral appliance that will fit your unique smile. We use the same technology to create oral appliances for patients suffering from TMJ disorder, teeth grinding, or sleep disorders. You enjoy a custom created guard, without having to bite down on a sticky, poor tasting mold! After we create the oral appliance, we send it home with you so you can put it to good use! As your mouth grows and changes, then we will help you create a new and updated mouthguard, ensuring a comfortable fit and great protection. If you have any questions about oral appliances and protecting smiles of all ages from injury, then contact our team today. In 2019, let’s resolve to take better care of our smiles together!
