Athletic Mouthguards

Loose or Decayed Teeth

Athletic mouthguards Athletic mouthguards are prescribed for professional and amateur athletes because, when worn properly, they can help prevent dental trauma, such as fractured teeth. If you play close contact sports or have a child who plays sports, there is a chance that they could damage or dislodge their teeth while out in the field.

Many of us who engage in contact and even non-contact sports and activities need adequate and effective protection for our teeth and gums. Close contact sports like hockey, football and wrestling can all impact their teeth. To prevent damage from happening, an athletic mouth guard can be useful and improves cushioning in front of and in between a patient's smile.

Dr Nason DDS offers state-of-the-art, custom-designed athletic mouthguards that can provide the needed protection. Athletic mouthguards are specifically made to fit your teeth as comfortably as possible, helping to protect the inside of your mouth from impacts on the playing field or while running, exercising, and practicing other forms of activity that may endanger your dental health.

Who is a Candidate for Athletic Mouthguards

Both adults and children alike can and should consider having an athletic mouthguard made when playing sports. Athletic mouthguards are an important piece of athletic equipment for anyone participating in a sport that involves falls, body contact or flying equipment. This includes football, basketball, baseball, soccer, hockey, skateboarding, gymnastics, mountain biking or any activity that might result in an injury to the mouth.

When worn properly, they can prevent dental trauma, such as fractured teeth. They are also indicated for patients with an orthodontic situation, such as braces, who must wear a mouthguard for preventive measures. With custom mouthguards, you can go a long way to preventing severe oral damage and even tooth loss.

If you've been wearing a conventional guard, it might be time for a more customized fit. You will find that your smile is benefited and that your teeth are better protected thanks to our mouthguard.

What Can You Expect when Getting Athletic Mouthguards

Our athletic mouthguards are individually designed and made in our dentist office. They will provide you the most comfortable fit and best mouth protection when you play contact sports. We take impressions of your teeth and then constructs the mouth guard over a model of them. Because they fit and feel better, most athletes prefer customized mouth guards.

You'll find that the mouth guard provides a layer of cushioning between and in front of your teeth. This cushioning can withstand a considerable amount of contact and should be worn any time you are playing close contact sports. If you'd like to learn more about athletic mouth guards, call our office today.
