Orthodontic Mouthguards at Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry
Protect Your Teeth, Mouth And Braces
We’ve found that almost 40 percent of all dental injuries are sports related? If you wear braces, contact sports don’t only put your teeth at risk, metal in an athlete’s mouth can introduce a host of new risks as well.
How Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry Helps: Customized Mouthguards Protect You And Your Investment
Most contact sports require athletes to wear mouthguards. Properly fitted mouthguards help protect both an athlete’s teeth and the other athletes on the field. But once we fit your braces, your mouthguard may not fit properly. An ill-fitting mouthguard is not only uncomfortable, it’s also less effective at protecting you from impact, injury and damage.
Braces are an investment worth protecting. Even if you don’t always wear a mouthguard while playing sports, you’ll want to reconsider while wearing braces. Stray balls and other athletes in contact with your orthodontic equipment can be a painful experience. Not only that, excessive contact can damage brackets and cause delays in orthodontic treatment.
Investing in a mouthguard can make all the difference for you and your family’s oral health. While participating in sports and other activities is fun, Dr. Holsteen recommends that you protect your beautiful smile while doing so! Let’s talk about your unique and individual oral safety needs.
