At Fair Lakes Family Dentistry, we consider it a privilege to help patients protect their smile with our dental care services. For our athletic patients, we highly recommend wearing a custom mouthguard during sports. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), more than 200,000 mouth-related injuries are prevented each year by wearing a mouthguard. An athletic mouthguard can help patients avoid chipped, broken and avulsed teeth as well as lacerations to the lips and cheeks. Furthermore, recent studies have shown that a well-fit mouthguard can also help prevent concussions in youth sports. It is a minor investment compared to the invaluable protection it can offer your child.
Custom Sports Mouthguards
Mouthguards are a common piece of equipment for football players and boxers. However, participants of any type of contact sport should consider a mouthguard. While you can certainly buy a stock or “boil and bite” mouthguard at your local sporting goods store, patients gain maximum protection and comfort from a mouthguard that is custom fabricated by a dentist.
Fair Lakes Family Dentistry is proud to offer top quality athletic mouthguards to patients of all ages in Cypress. Our mouthguards are durable and tailored to fit every crevice of your bite. This makes it more comfortable to wear and provides the most protection. You should be able to breathe and speak easily while wearing a custom sports mouthguard. This is a welcome advantage for kids who are prone to removing or adjusting their mouthpiece throughout a game or practice.
Getting a custom fit mouthguard at Fair Lakes Family Dentistry is a simple and quick process. We only need to take a brief impression of your teeth, and we will call you when your mouthguard is ready. To schedule your appointment, please contact our Cypress dental office today. If you have an old custom mouthguard that is showing signs of wear or losing its shape, make sure you replace it in a timely manner so that you are getting the protection you need.
