Customized Sports Mouth Guards in Burke, VA

Play it Safe with Customized Mouth Guards for Sports.

You’ve probably heard the expression, ”Put your money where your mouth is.” Nowhere is this truer than when playing sports. Medical and dental care resulting from a direct hit to the mouth or the loss of a tooth can be expensive. Whether you are a professional player in the big leagues or an amateur athlete who plays only on weekends, there’s no reason to play games with your mouth and teeth.

Why you need a custom mouth guard.

The American Dental Association estimates that sports-related oral injuries impact an estimated 200,000 players a year. A customized mouth guard from Dental Associates of Northern Virginia can be a simple fix, designed specifically to prevent these particular types of oral sports’ injuries.

What is customized sports mouth guard?

A customized mouth guard is designed to specifically match the structure of an individual player’s mouth. As a result, it not only provides greater protection. It also offers a more comfortable fit. This makes a player more likely to wear it regularly.

The advantages of customized mouth guards vs. those sold at athletic stores.

The typical boil and bite mouth guard sold at an athletic store may be better than no protection at all, but barely. These retail versions can’t match the superior protection of a custom-designed mouth guard from your Dental Associates of Northern Virginia dentist. Common mouth guards sold at retail typically lack the added protection of a custom fit, leaving players susceptible to a number of serious injuries. Players who wear braces are particularly vulnerable to the serious lacerations that can result from a direct hit to the mouth.

Get an exact fit with a customized sports mouth guard.

The mouth guards available from your Dental Associates of Northern Virginia dentists are specifically designed to the exact specifications of an athlete’s mouth. Players who wear custom mouth guards not only get a more exact and comfortable fit. They get superior protection and improved sports’ performance.

How a custom sports mouth guard improves sports performance.

First, the more comfortable fit of a custom mouth guard eliminates the obvious distraction of fiddling with an ill-fitted one when the player’s mind should be on the game. Second, many athletes leave the mouth area susceptible to injury because they refuse to wear a mouth guard at all.

Why athletes avoid wearing mouth guards.

Refusal to wear a mouth guard often stems from issues with the appearance or comfort of the common boil and bite variety available at most retail stores. Many times, mouth guards get left in the locker room or on the field because they’re simply too bulky or uncomfortable to wear. Customized mouth guards, however, are designed to provide optimum comfort and greater oxygen flow. This increased level of oxygen can actually improve an athlete’s endurance and performance on the playing field.

Don’t play games with oral health and safety.

If you play contact sports, or have a child who plays, ask your Dental Associates dentist to recommend a custom-fitted mouth guard. Our mouth guard professionals can fit athletes with uniquely designed protection for their particular sport and precise mouth dimensions. Don’t let the possibility of a lost tooth or serious sports’ injury distract a player from the game.
