Dr. Clanton and his dental team offer “custom-fitted mouthguards” as both a preventive and protective appliance for adults and children. They are made of a soft, flexible acrylic (often customized with color) that provides for comfortable wear since fabricated from an actual impression (mold) of your teeth. When “custom-fitted”, these mouthguards will be stable and comfortable to wear. This also helps them to remain securely in place while being worn allowing for you to breathe and speak normally.
Why wear a mouth guard during sports activities?
Wearing a mouthguard during athletic and sports related activities can greatly reduce the risk of traumatic dental injury and tooth loss.
Anyone participating in any form of contact or non-contact sports can certainly benefit from this protection. Mouthguards are “essential equipment” in protecting your smile.
