No matter what age or what sport you do, a dental mouthguard should be an essential part of your sports uniform.
Custom-made dental mouthguards help protect and avoid potential injuries to your mouth and or teeth.
Houston’s Dr. Jonathan Penchas of Midtown Dentistry can create a custom-made mouthguard to precisely fit your mouth to help give you maximum protection.
Store-bought mouth guards generally have a loose fit and, during activity, can come loose and dislodge in your mouth. You end up losing teeth and lead to suffocation or blockage of the airways.
Custom-fit mouth guards have the following advantages over store-bought ones:
- They are more comfortable.
- They are not expensive.
- Can be made quickly
- Less chance of injury to your teeth
To make your mouthguard, 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 mouthguard 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.
