Dr. James White provides patients with custom sports mouthguards in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mouthguards are a general dental service that protect teeth during contact sports. Custom-fit professional mouthguards save patients from replacing missing teeth or needing treatment for chipped and cracked teeth. A mouthguard is a preventative measure that saves patients money in the long run. In addition, it can even reduce the chance of injury or concussion.
Benefits of Mouthguards
Receiving a professional, custom-fit mouthguard offers an array of benefits. Mouthguards:
- Fit securely
- Prevent tooth loss
- Provide a stable result
- Allow the wearer to speak more clearly
- Protect dental work from damage
- Reduce the chance of concussion
- Minimize the risk of bruising and injury
- Reduce the risk of knocked out teeth
- Protect the lower jaw from trauma
- Reduce stress on the neck
- Minimize the risk of chipped and damaged teeth
Over-the-counter “boil and bite” mouth guards that are not custom-fit can easily fall out. They may also interfere with breathing and speaking and may not be as comfortable as custom professional mouthguards. A customized and more comfortable fit may lead to improved endurance on the field without the need for jaw clenching to keep the mouthguard in place.
Treatment with Sports Mouthguards
Dr. White will work with you to create a sports mouthguard that is personalized to your particular needs. He will take a dental impression, or mold of teeth so that the final product can be crafted in a lab. When the mouthguard is complete, Dr. White will make sure the mouthguard is comfortable and easy for you to use. You should regularly clean your mouthguard with water and mouthwash or soap to make sure bacteria doesn’t multiply. Use cool water as hot water can warp the plastic. Store the mouthguard in a well-ventilated container to dry between uses.
