Protect your smile with athletic mouthguards and nightguards
Certain sports activities, such as soccer and hockey, can increase the potential for damaging or even losing natural teeth by injury. To protect the smile from irreversible and expensive damage, patients should consider the benefits of using special oral appliances such as mouthguards. Additionally, in East Point, Georgia, patients who clench and grind their teeth at night while sleeping may also benefit from mouthguards known as nightguards. Whether you need sportsguards or teeth-grinding guards, our dental team can help!
How can a mouthguard assist with the clenching and grinding?
The medical term for clenching and grinding teeth at night is called bruxism. Bruxism is not only harmful to the teeth and bite, but it can also result in jaw pain and chronic migraines and headaches. Let our dental team know if you are dealing with these issues. We can create a customized nightguard that prevents damage from occurring to the teeth and alleviates common problems and symptoms associated with bruxism.
Why are mouthguards important for sports activities?
Many mouth injuries can result in significant trauma or damage to the smile, including cutting soft tissues, broken teeth, or completely lost teeth. With the use of mouthguards, patients can protect their smiles and reduce the risk of potential long term problems. Our team of professionals at BLUSH Dental Studio can create a customized mouthguard for your smile to ensure proper fit and function. We invite patients involved in high-impact sports to strongly consider the advantages of using this protective gear, including those involved in:
