- A custom mouth guard can prevent broken teeth, the complete loss of teeth, and soft tissue injuries to the mouth, lips and tongue.
- A custom fit mouth guard can also prevent or lessen the force of a blow that might otherwise cause a jaw fracture or concussion.
- Mouth guards protect against neck and central nervous system injuries because they decrease the amount of force transmitted through the jaw to the base of the skull.
- For kids wearing braces, a mouth guard is a necessity. It serves as a physical barrier between the brackets and the mouth, cheeks, lips and tongue to protect them from an impact.
Think of the mouth guard as an AIR BAG for the teeth!
The American Dental Association reports that studies of mouth guard users and nonusers have consistently shown that mouth guards offer significant protection against sports-related injuries to the teeth and soft tissues.
The custom fit mouth guard is easy to make and provides better protection than the ones sold in most sporting goods stores. Using a tray with impression material, a member of our clinical staff takes an alginate impression of the teeth, which is used to make a model that is then crafted into a custom-fit mouth guard.
We want to remind our patients, their parents and their coaches to remember to wear mouth guards and appropriate protective gear when participating in sports and any recreational activities that could lead to getting a facial injury.
Just call us to schedule your team’s visit – 631-427-8444. This is one ounce of protection that’s worth a lifetime of smiles!
