Save Your Athlete’s Smile With A Custom Mouthguard
Posted on:Wednesday, December 30, 2015

Playing sports can put you at risk for tooth damage- even tooth loss! One collision can result in a lifelong change to your smile which can often be avoided by wearing a custom fit sports mouthguard.

Studies on athletic performance have also shown that a custom fit mouthguard reduces both stress on jaw joints and energy lost to teeth clenching: the mouthguard holds the teeth in a neutral position that enables the jaw to relax. This may not hold true for many over the counter options which typically require the wearer to bite down in order to avoid having the device fall out during play.

Family and Spa Dentistry in Pennington offers custom fit mouth guards for sports to protect your teeth as well as any oral appliances, such as orthodontics. Dr. Vagnozzi-Bucci or an associate will take impressions of your teeth to create a mouth guard that will fit snugly over your teeth and stay in place. They can be ordered in a variety of fun colors for your young athlete to make it fun to wear- you can even match it to your team uniform.

A secure fitting mouthguard also protects the soft tissues of the mouth during impact, preventing damage that can be caused if the sharp edges of the teeth are forced into the cheeks, lips, etc.
