We only get one set of teeth, protect yours with a custom sports mouthguard.
Sports-related injuries are a common cause of tooth loss in adolescents and adults. Protecting your smile during sports is important for keeping your natural teeth intact. Custom sports mouthguards, provided by your dentist offer improved fit and comfort when compared to over the counter options.
Custom fit mouthguards are a cost-effective alternative to needing dental implants. A custom sports mouthguard is designed to securely fit into your mouth, protecting your teeth and jaw from impact injuries.
Many studies show that custom mouthguards improve athlete’s performance. With a well fit mouthguard that does not slip or agitate the mouth, athletes are able to focus on their game not on clenching their jaw down to keep the mouthguard in place. Young athletes are also less likely to remove their mouthguard during practice or between plays reducing the risk of losing the mouthguard.
Skyline Family Dentistry custom designs and fabricates mouthguards on site. We handle all aspects of creating your mouthguard ensuring the best possible fit for optimal comfort.
Receiving a custom mouthguard is quick, easy and painless. Dr. Overholtzer will take a mold of your upper and lower jaw. The molds will be used in our on-site dental lab to create the mouthguard. Once the mouthguards are fabricated, patients are able to use the device right away.
