One of the biggest risks an athlete faces when playing a contact sport is suffering from severe injury damage. Fortunately, protective mouth guards can all but eliminate these risks and keep the user’s oral structures safe during intense competition.
Trumbull Premier Dental offers custom-fit mouth guards for any adult who plays a contact sport, as well as night guards for patients suffering from bruxism.
In order to receive a custom-fitted mouth guard, the patient will need to have impressions taken of their teeth. These impressions will then be sent to a dental laboratory where the mouth guard will be built. The custom fit helps to ensure that the user feels comfortable and that there is no interference with the user’s breathing or speaking in any way. And since our mouth guards are built from high-quality materials, they will provide optimal protection for the user’s oral structures. Most mouth guards last for about three to five years before needing to be replaced.
Some of the injuries and problems that can be prevented by using a mouth guard include:
In addition to athletic mouth guards, Trumbull Premier Dental also provides custom-fit night guards for patients suffering from bruxism. This is a health condition that causes a person to unknowingly clench and grind their teeth while they are asleep. When bruxism is left untreated, it can lead to severe problems and issues. Some of these problems include excessively worn-down teeth, major jawbone pain and teeth breakages and fractures. One of the best ways to prevent these problems is to use a night guard while sleeping. With a custom fit, our night guards feel comfortable, and they should not cause any disruptions to the patient’s normal sleeping.
A protective mouth guard or night guard can go a long way towards protecting your teeth from serious damage. A visit to our practice is the first step to receiving a custom-fitted mouth guard. You may call us at (203) 408-2868 to schedule an appointment.
