Sports Guards and Sports mouthguards at Dr Daniel Tebbi DMD, Cosmetic Dentist in Encino
Sports mouthguards (also termed athletic mouthpieces, football protectors, or spelled "mouth guards" using two words) are plastic dental appliances which when worn can help to protect the hard and soft tissues of the mouth from damage caused by traumatic blows and collisions. The value of an athletic mouthguard simply cannot be overstated. It's been estimated that as many as one third of all injuries treated by dentists are sports related. It's also been estimated that during any single season an athlete participating in a contact sport runs about a 10% chance of experiencing some sort of orofacial injury (injury of the tissues or structures in or around the mouth).
If you, or your kids play sports, you need a properly fitted sports guard to protect against damage to your teeth and dental work. After all, a single blow to your mouth can easily cause tooth fracture, tooth dislodgement, or damage to your crowns, bridges, porcelain veneers, or dental implants.
All it takes to protect your teeth is one simple, painless visit. There are no needles, no drugs, no tools in your mouth. Even better, no X-rays are required. To find out how sports guards can protect your teeth, please contact our Encino office today.
