Sports Guards and Sports mouthguards at Dr. Daniel Tebbi DMD, Cosmetic Dentist in Encino
Mouthguards are mouth accessories designed to protect the teeth and soft tissues from harm. Constructed of dental-grade plastic, they may be fabricated to fit properly on your teeth specifically. This personalized construction would protect your teeth while being so comfortable, you wouldn't even notice you were wearing a mouthguard.
Athletes play intensely in their sports. So they train hard and do a lot of workouts to keep themselves fit. And so, It is not unusual for an athlete to injure their mouth while doing these, breaking or cracking the teeth and inflaming the soft tissues of the mouth. Thankfully, Daniel Tebbi, D.M.D. - Cosmetic Dentistry & Orthodontics in Encino, CA. offers mouthguards to safeguard your teeth during sports.
What Are the Types of Mouthguards Available?
A stock mouthguard is a standard-size type of oral appliance that may be purchased at any sports store. Though it protects the teeth from harm, it does not fit perfectly or provides much comfort.
Boil-and-bite mouthguards are constructed of a unique type of plastic that softens when heated. The user can then bite into it, and it will solidify and hold its shape after cooling. Although it is superior to a stock mouthguard, it does not provide a perfect fit.
Almost all professional athletes use custom-made mouthguards to protect their teeth while competing. A competent dentist would make molds of your teeth and use the information to create a bespoke mouthguard. It would be composed of dental-grade plastic and would provide a flawless fit and protection for your teeth.
Why Should You Acquire a Mouthguard That Is Unique to You?
Mass-produced mouthguards provide reasonable injury protection but are often not comfortable to wear. In trying to fit anyone’s teeth, they are frequently too big and would fall off whenever you opened your mouth or spoke. This is why using a mouthguard that is custom-made to fit the contours of your teeth is what we highly recommend.
- A custom-made mouthguard provides the best fit and comfort.
- Impact forces would be absorbed by the mouthguard, protecting the soft tissues of the mouth.
- During use, the TMJ or jaws would not be subjected to unequal stresses.
- The force of a high-impact blow to the mouth would be spread evenly among the teeth, preventing harm.
