In most cases, trauma to the teeth during sports can be prevented. Taking preventive measures to protect the teeth during contact related sports can save you time, money, and discomfort in the future.
Most dentists recommend that patients of all ages wear mouthguards during sports to protect their teeth and gums. General dentist Dr. Justin Deckard offers custom-made mouthguards in our Washingon, DC dentist office. Custom sports mouthguards are ideal for patients of all ages and offer superior comfort and protection.
Over the counter mouthguards can cause soft tissue irritation and may fall out during contact sports. Custom designed mouthguards are created using your unique dental impressions and fit comfortably and securely over the teeth. Patients can focus on the sport at hand instead of clenching the jaw to keep their mouthguard in place. Properly fitting mouthguards also allow patients to drink and speak while wearing their device.
