Do you or your child play sports? Wearing a mouthguard during contact sports can protect the teeth, gums, and orthodontics. Dr. Jordan Morris creates professional, custom sports mouthguards in Sahuarita, AZ. He takes impressions to ensure the sports mouthguard fits correctly and comfortably. Mouthguards are made of soft, BPA-free plastic that helps absorb shock. This general dental treatment can also prevent the need for cosmetic or restorative work.
Do Custom Mouthguards Make a Difference?
“Boil and bite” mouthguards that you can find in stores often do not use quality materials or provide the best fit. Poorly fitted mouthguards can slip in the mouth and even fall out. In addition, patients with poorly fitted mouthguards often need to clench their teeth to prevent the mouthguard from slipping during a game. Teeth clenching is distracting and also puts pressure on the teeth and jaw.
Professionally made mouthguards are meant to stay in the mouth to protect the teeth. Our professional mouthguards use quality materials that conform to patient smiles. Choosing a custom-made, professional mouthguard can prevent problems like broken or knocked-out teeth. Mouthguards also help minimize the severity of sports or dental injuries and accidents.
Custom Sports Mouthguards in Sahuarita, AZ
Additional benefits of custom sports mouthguards include:
- Minimized risk of injuries to soft tissues
- Protect teeth from breaks and loss
- Help wearers easily speak and drink
We take dental impressions of the upper teeth to create mouthguards customized to your smile. Sports mouthguards cover the upper teeth because these teeth typically stick out more and are more at risk of damage. Once the mouthguards are complete, we will provide you with a case to protect the mouthguard. After each wear, clean your mouthguard with water and liquid soap. Then, place your mouthguard in its ventilated case.
