Keep Your Teeth Intact With a Custom Mouthguard
If you or your child play sports or are active, then you need to invest in the best mouth protection possible. We all know that football, basketball, and hockey players should wear a mouthguard. However, any sport that involves a flying ball or object, that involves running or jumping, or where players come in frequent contact with each other has the potential to cause injury to your teeth.Doctor Roessler on Athletic Mouthguards Read Transcript
Athletic mouthguards are really important. Some of the over-the-counter ones don't cover the teeth and gums adequately. With getting a custom-fit mouthguard here at our office, we can not only protect the teeth from any trauma but also affect the gums as well. They come in a variety of colors. You can get and pick the color that you want that is attractive. But it definitely, the most important thing is, is it's going to protect the teeth and the gums.
The ones that you get over-the-counter and in sport stores, I don't think they really do an adequate job of protecting the teeth entirely. For optimum protection of the teeth and gums, you would like to get a custom-fit, at like, mouthguard.
Our custom-fit mouthguards will outperform store-bought devices. Period. There is simply no comparison to a professionally made mouthguard and a “boil-and-bite” appliance. Ours will provide better protection, fit more comfortably, and last longer. Plus, you can get your new mouthguard in a variety of colors to match your team colors, and different thicknesses depending on your particular sport.
Stop Teeth Grinding & Dental Damage
Routine dental exams often reveal that a patient has been grinding their teeth, many times without their being aware of it. Left alone, teeth grinding (or bruxism) can wear down your teeth and make you more susceptible to tooth sensitivity and tooth decay.
A professional night guard worn while you sleep will prevent teeth grinding. It will fit comfortably in your mouth and keep your teeth apart. You’ll avoid the need for care from a restorative dentist, and since teeth grinding is a cause of jaw pain, your jaw may feel better, too.
Mundelein mouthguards can help you maintain a healthy, whole smile. Call us today to get yours: 847-652-9147.
