At Pearl Dental Care, we do everything we can to protect your smile with general dentistry. If you or your child is involved in contact sports, an athletic mouthguard should be an essential piece of equipment. Not only does a custom mouthguard protect you from chipped, broken or dislodged teeth, but it has also been proven to help prevent jaw injuries, lip or cheek lacerations and even concussions.
For the most comfortable fit and maximum protection, a custom mouthguard is recommended. At Pearl Dental Care, all we need is a simple impression of your bite to fabricate your personal mouthguard for sports. We use durable and safe materials that are designed to fit comfortable for longer periods of time. Your custom mouthguard should allow you to breathe and speak easily during play, which is not always achieved with a store bought or "boil-and-bite" mouthguard.
Another way we can preserve your beautiful smile is with a night guard. This type of custom mouthguard is designed to protect your teeth and jaw while you sleep. Patients who suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding, are prime candidates for night guards. You may be unaware you have a nighttime teeth grinding habit. However, symptoms such as morning headaches, TMJ problems and worn down teeth are common warning signs that you are grinding your teeth during the night. The most effective way to protect the health and beauty of your smile from his harmful habit is to wear a night guard while you sleep. At Pearl Dental Care, our night guards provide valued comfort and the peace of mind that your bruxism habit isn't ruining your smile overnight.
Your smile is worth protecting. For more information about our top quality athletic mouthguards or night guards, please contact Pearl Dental Care today. A mouthguard is a minor investment that can prevent costly dental problems in the future.
