Mouth guards are an essential piece of equipment for individuals who participate in contact sports and activities. These devices are effective for preventing serious damage to your teeth and mouth.
Participating in sports is a great way to get in shape and have fun, but it can present serious injury risks for teeth, especially if they are left unprotected. It is possible for a single blow to lead to a lifetime of oral health problems. The good news is that most oral injuries can be prevented by simply wearing a properly fitted, protective mouth guard.
The team at Wauchula Dental urges our patients who play contact sports to wear a high-quality, custom-fitted mouth guard. They are comfortable to wear and won’t interfere with the normal breathing or speaking. These devices can truly mean the difference between getting right back into the action and experiencing major dental health consequences.
Mouth guards have been proven to help prevent the following health conditions:
Wauchula Dental offers custom-made mouth guards that are built using the finest materials available. Custom-fit mouth guards provide superior protection and comfort when compared with the mouth guards that are available in stores. This makes them an important investment for virtually any athlete.
Wauchula Dental also offers night guards to protect an individual’s teeth from damage while they are sleeping. Many people suffer from bruxism, a condition that causes a person to unknowingly clench and grind their teeth while they are asleep. This can lead to problems such as worn-down enamel, jaw pain, tooth fractures and recurring headaches. A night guard will help to prevent these problems.
Both athletic mouth guards and protective night guards are available from Wauchula Dental. Protecting your teeth from serious injury is extremely important. Don’t wait until it’s too late and you’ve already suffered a serious injury. Please call us at (863) 773-9344 to schedule an appointment.
