Save Your Teeth From Damage With Athletic Mouthguards

Sports are a big part of society in Burke, VA, as well as the entire United States. They can bring together thousands of people to feel great jubilation or despair all at the same time. Sports even bring out emotions in some of us that probably shouldn’t come out from something that really doesn’t matter when it comes to life and death. There are numerous things that all athletes have in common, but only one of them relates to maintaining their oral health. Whether it’s LeBron James, Tom Brady, or Peyton Manning, you’ll notice that all of these elite athletes protect their teeth with athletic mouthguards!

If you’re playing a contact sport, it is essential to protect your teeth with an athletic mouthguard. They guard against things like an opponent’s elbow knocking a tooth out, biting your tongue when falling to the ground, and getting hit in the face with the ball and having damage to your teeth or gums. These examples of how athletic mouthguards protect your teeth, tongue, and gums aren’t the only ways that they guard against oral injuries. At Fox Family Dentistry, we want to make sure that you and yours are protected against every oral injury possible when playing a contact sport. That is why we offer custom-made athletic mouthguards!

The Benefits of Custom-Made Mouthguards

When you see LeBron James out on the court, he is always wearing his mouthguard. If his mouthguard affected his play at all, there would be no doubt that he would no longer wear it because in his profession, performance is everything. If he were wearing a generic mouthguard, it would no doubt affect the way that he played on the court. That is why LeBron James has his mouthguards custom-made to fit his teeth perfectly! At Fox Family Dentistry, we can make you a custom mouthguard that will protect your mouth from damage while it comfortably fits over your teeth.

If you settle for a generic mouthguard, there are a number of things that can affect your play. That’s because you’re thinking about your mouthguard instead of what you need to do in the game. If your mouthguard doesn’t fit well, it can fall out of your mouth in the middle of the game, it can rub the inside of your cheek raw because it doesn’t fit right, or even worse, your gums can be rubbed raw from the constant movement of your mouthguard.

How We Will Custom Fit Your Athletic Mouthguard

When you make an appointment with Fox Family Dentistry to get your custom-made athletic mouthguard, we will make sure that it fits perfectly! That will involve taking a mold of your teeth that we can keep for our records along with using it to create your mouthguard. This process will be easy visits to our office and will send you on your way to playing your favorite sport comfortably while protecting your teeth at the same time!

What Can Happen if You Choose Not To Wear a Mouthguard

There is a reason why major athletes wear protective mouthguards. It is because they want to avoid the pain and dental bills that come with not wearing an athletic mouthguard. Even though they make millions of dollars, they know that those dental bills as a result of not wearing a mouthguard are just unnecessary. Why pay them if you don’t have to? What suffers unnecessary damage to your smile? That is exactly the way you should be thinking – you should most definitely spend a relatively small amount of money to have a custom mouthguard made at Fox Family Dentistry rather than take the risk of having damage inflicted upon your mouth.

We want to make sure that your teeth, gums, and tongue are protected when you are on the field of play. That is why we offer a service that not every dentist offers in the form of athletic mouthguards. At Fox Family Dentistry, we have your best interests in mind! If you need an athletic mouthguard for you or a loved one call us at 703-978-5253 to make an appointment, or use our simple online contact form. We want you to live a happy, healthy life!
