At Katy Dental Experts in Katy, TX, we believe prevention is an essential part of optimal dental care. For this reason, we recommend that any of our patients that participate in sports or athletic activities properly protect themselves. We offer custom-made sports mouthguards for our patients to wear while participating in athletic events. Whether it be football, volleyball or soccer, a properly fitted sports guard can protect your mouth from damage during a traumatic sports injury.
At our Katy dental office, we offer sports guards that are custom made for each patient. This ensures that the mouthguard fits your teeth properly and comfortably, allowing you to enjoy the game without worrying about a traumatic injury that could leave you toothless. Our sports guards are worn on the upper arch of teeth. However, they also protect the bottom teeth, tongue, and even jaw.
Patients that participate in contact sports or athletic activities that neglect to wear a custom sports mouth guard are much more prone to traumatic dental injuries. In these situations, the patient can not only damage teeth—in some cases teeth can be partially and even fully dislodged. This can result in costly dental treatments such as a bridge or even dental implants just to restore your smile to its natural appearance.
Want to make sure you or a loved one is protected while enjoying sports? Contact our Katy dental practice today! We’d be happy to schedule an appointment so that you can be evaluated for a sports guard. We look forward to helping you protect your beautiful smile!
