Once you reach your adolescent years your adult teeth have started to erupt, these are the teeth that you’ll have for the rest of your life. Break them or lose them to a traumatic injury and that’s it – the tooth fairy isn’t coming back and those tooth aren’t going to be replaced by your own natural teeth. Before the dentist has to replace broken teeth a better solution is to protect your teeth whenever they might be in danger of being exposed to a sudden injury with the use of Springfield Gardens mouth guards. Our Rochdale Dental Care practice has developed custom measured and fabricated mouth guards for our patients.
Springfield Gardens mouth guards are designed for a several different types of users. Our doctor recommends the use of mouth guards to protect the teeth for anybody, adult or child that plays any type of contact sport like football, basketball or boxing but also for those participating in sports where contact is less prevalent but there are a lot of fast-moving balls or other object such as tennis or baseball. Mouth guards are also used to protect the teeth of workers in certain professions like construction or some manufacturing jobs. Our practice will take impressions of your mouth, usually the upper jaw, and produce a mouth guard from either hard or soft material, depending on the type of mouth guard required. Because they are custom fitted our practice’s mouth guards perform better and are more comfortable than those available in retail stores or online that are one size or that are boiled to get them to sort of mold to the shape of the mouth.
Springfield Gardens mouth guards are used for more than just protecting the teeth of athletes. Mouth guards are also used for medical reasons. For those that grind their teeth at night or experience the discomfort and pain of TMJ a mouth guard will help to prevent the grinding from damaging the teeth as well as relaxing the jaw muscles while the patient sleeps. A special form of mouth guard is also available to help reduce snoring and cure sleep apnea a dangerous condition where the patient’s airwaves are blocked repeatedly during the night. Let our practice make a custom fitted mouth guard to protect your teeth whether for the bedroom or the athletic field.
