Protecting Your Smile With Athletic Mouthguards

All it takes is an inadvertent elbow to change your or your child’s smile for the worst by knocking out one or more teeth. In contact sports, it is incredibly important to take measures to ensure that your teeth are protected, or else they could be knocked out by accident by another player or a fall. Not protecting your teeth with an athletic mouthguard while playing sports is just asking for unnecessary dental bills as a result of having teeth knocked out, broken, or chipped, or any other injury to your teeth, gums, or tongue. We want the best for your smile and your family’s smile at Fox Family Dentistry, and that is why we offer customized athletic mouthguards to wear when you’re competing on the field of play.

Why Our Mouthguards Are Different at Fox Family Dentistry

When you buy generic athletic mouthguards from your local sporting goods store, you are running the risk of being incredibly uncomfortable while playing sports. If your mouthguard doesn’t fit correctly, it will most assuredly affect your focus and hurt your overall performance. An uncomfortable mouthguard can also lead to blisters and spots that are rubbed raw on the inside of your mouth. When this happens, you aren’t only dealing with your uncomfortable mouthguard during the game, but you’re also dealing with its ramifications throughout the whole week.

Getting Your Custom Athletic Mouthguard

When you come into Fox Family Dentistry for an athletic mouthguard, we will start by making sure that your mouthguard will fit perfectly. We do this by giving you a mouthguard that conforms perfectly to your teeth to the point where you can breathe and talk without being bothered by your mouthguard. With a generic mouthguard, it may not fit your teeth properly, and when you are playing the sport that you play, it may impede your breathing and cause you to get tired quicker than usual.

You will also need to communicate with your teammates when you are playing, and with a generic mouthguard your words will be slurred to the point where it could mean the difference between winning and losing. When you wear our custom-fitting mouthguard, you’ll be able to speak clearly, so there will be little chance of being misunderstood by your teammates.
