PROTECTION DURING sports and other extreme activities can potentially save your teeth and gums from serious, or permanent damage. Cheap over-the-counter mouthguards may seem appealing because of the low price tag, but without the correct protective properties, cheap mouthguards could cost an athlete more in the long run. Not All Mouthguards Give Equal Protection Contrary to custom-fitted athletic mouthguards, over-the-counter options are often uncomfortable to wear and do not provide the proper amount of protection to the teeth and mouth. On the other hand, custom mouthguards are far more comfortable because they are made to fit your mouth specifically. Other benefits of custom mouthguards include: easy breathing and improved speech for maximum endurance and clear communication a secure fit that stays in place during impact professionally sized to any mouth size resistant to irritation of sensitive gums reduced risk and severity of dental injuries rated for the highest level of protection minimal discomfort and inconvenience when worn Mouth Protection Is An Investment Although personalized athletic mouthguards have a higher cost than over-the-counter options, they can potentially save you from serious expenses from injuries sustained from insufficient protection. We Want To Help Protect Your Smile Investing in a custom mouthguard can make all of the difference for you and your family’s oral health. While participating in sports and other activities is fun, it’s important that you protect your beautiful smile while doing so! Let’s talk about your unique and individual oral safety needs. If you or someone you know are in need of a custom mouthguard or have questions about custom mouthguards, please contact us. Thank you for being our valued patient and friend!
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED why it’s so important to see us every six months? From oral health maintenance to serious disease prevention, there are a lot of reasons to keep your semi-annual visits on your calendar. Open Wide And Say “Aahhh” So what do we look for when we examine your pearly whites? During typical checkups we examine the overall health of your teeth and gums, looking for signs of tooth decay, gum disease and checking up on the condition of existing dental work. X-rays may also be taken to ensure the health of the roots of your teeth, and to reveal things we cannot see. Once we examine your mouth and teeth, it’s cleaning time. We do so by: Doing an overall cleanliness check Removing plaque and tartar Polishing your teeth Flossing between your teeth After your teeth are cleaned, we’ll talk about recommendations for keeping your teeth and gums healthy until your next regular visit. Thinking Outside The Mouth While a clean and vibrant smile is a definite confidence booster, it can also promote sound overall health. Bacteria from untreated gum disease can spread to other parts of the body and increase the risk of heart disease and other serious conditions. We can also spot warning signs of other conditions. Things such as vitamin deficiencies, osteoporosis and even diabetes can present symptoms in our mouths. We Care About Your Whole Body Health Our practice is focused on the latest treatments to create healthy and resilient smiles. In addition to helping your smile look and feel its best, we’re committed to your overall health. We want to make sure you’re as healthy as possible when you visit us!
