No matter what age, or what sport you do, a dental mouth guard should be an essential part of your sport uniform.
Custom-made dental mouth guards help protect and avoid potential injuries to your mouth and or teeth.
Dr. Jonathan Penchas at Midtown Dentistry in Houston can create a custom-made mouth guard to specifically fit your mouth to help give you maximum protection. Store bought mouth guards may have a loose fit. As a result if you are hit, they could come loose and dislodge in your mouth. Not only could you end up losing teeth, but it could lead suffocation or blockage of the airways. Custom-fit mouth guards are more comfortable than store bought mouth guards, don’t take a long time to make and are not expensive– especially when compared to the cost of replacing missing teeth.
To make your mouth-guard, your dentist will first take a mold of your teeth to get the exact shape, size and fit of your mouth. This dental mold will then be used to create a comfortable mouth guard that will fit snuggly around your teeth. Custom-made mouth guards from Midtown Dentistry provide a safe and effective form of dental protection during your athletic activities.
