Did you know that over 5 million teeth are knocked out each year? And, the lifetime cost to replace one tooth is approximately $20,000? When it comes to protecting you and your loved one’s smiles, Katy Dental Experts recommends a custom sports mouth guard for any patient who is interested in partaking in athletic activities or sports. Wondering a mouth guard is recommended for your sport or activity?
Although there are store-bought, generic mouthguards available, these are often ill-fitting, uncomfortable and inefficient and properly protecting the smile, jaw and face.
When it comes to properly protecting your oral health, Katy Dental Experts recommends a custom sports mouth guard. We’ve found that most athletes prefer not to wear bulky, uncomfortable ill-fitting mouthguards and may even be inclined to remove them (increasing their risk for a traumatic dental sports injury). Generic over-the-counter mouthguards are often ruined within a few uses as well, making them a costly investment in the long run.
At Katy Dental Experts, our custom sports guards are personalized per patient to ensure proper fit and the most comfort possible, allowing for maximum protecting and proper breathing. Our custom mouth guards can even be worn by patients who are currently undergoing orthodontic treatment, also protecting your investment.
Ready to make sure your smile is as protected as possible when playing sports? Schedule your appointment with Katy Dental Experts today! We’re always happy to have new patients and look forward to helping you protect your pearly whites.
