If you or your child play contact sports, you need a sports mouthguard to protect your teeth and gums from damage. Dr. Shannon French provides patients with custom sports mouthguards as a general dental solution for patients in Bladensboro, NC. Mouthguards are general dental treatments in that they can help prevent future dental problems. Chips, cracks, fractures, and even knocked-out teeth require cosmetic and restorative treatments that can get costly. Mouthguards are a great way to stop further dental problems that are so common in contact sports like soccer, basketball, football, and lacrosse.
What Are the Benefits of Mouthguards?
Our professional sports mouthguards:
- Provide a custom fit
- Reduce neck stress
- Allow players to speak clearly
- Protect the lower jaw from trauma
- Minimize the risk of damaged teeth
- Help prevent loose or knocked-out teeth
Call our office if a new sports season is coming up and you need a new custom mouthguard. Sports mouthguards typically need to be replaced every season, particularly if your child is losing their baby teeth. We always want to ensure that mouthguards conform to the teeth comfortably so they don’t fall out during a game.
Receive a Sports Mouthguard
To create a mouthguard, we will take dental impressions of the teeth. These impressions are used as a template for the mouthguard. They are sent to a dental lab for fabrication. When the mouthguard is complete, we will ensure that it fits comfortably. Mouthguards are easy to care for. They should be cleaned regularly with soap and water. Remember to not use hot water as this can warp the plastic. Then, the mouthguard can be dried in its case. Cleaning sports mouthguards keeps them smelling fresh and prevents bacteria growth.
