Many of our patient families will have sports gear under their tree this year. If yours does, you will also need athletic mouthguards.
About 5 million teeth get knocked out every year, many of them due to sports-related accidents. Lots of teeth get broken or otherwise damaged too. If that statistic isn’t enough to convince you, check out this short video. In an interview, actor Joe Manganiello shows Kelly Clarkson what a childhood sports injury did to his smile.
You can buy sports mouthguards from a store, but they are not as effective as custom-made mouthguards. Our dentists will take impressions of your athletes’ teeth that are used to create their mouthguards. The custom fit means they are more comfortable and more likely to stay in their mouths. There’s also no need for a boil-and-bite fit adjustment before the first wearing.
To schedule a visit to our Plano, TX office for a mouthguard fitting, call 972-787-0892 or schedule online. To visit one of our other locations, call 817-270-9217 in Hurst, TX, 972-787-1869 in McKinney, TX, or 214-740-6082 in Frisco, TX.
In addition to athletic mouthguards, we provide custom guards that keep you from grinding teeth in your sleep. This habit can do some serious damage to your smile. Grinding also results in jaw pain, headaches, and other unpleasant conditions.
