Custom Sports Mouth Guards

Did you know that several sports-related organizations now require custom sports mouth guards? It makes sense since many sports injuries involve the mouth and teeth. If you’re an athlete and want to protect your teeth, Esthetic Family Dentistry can make you a custom mouth guard.

What Happens When You Don’t Wear a Mouth Guard?

An athlete’s natural reaction is to clench their jaws during a competition because of the “fight or flight” instinct. This action can trigger an overflow of cortisol (the stress hormone) and restrict the airway because of nerve and muscle tension. A custom-made mouth guard helps limit this restriction, reducing lactic acid and minimizing soft tissue injuries to the gums and tissues inside the mouth.

How Can Our Dental Practice Help?

Esthetic Family Dentistry proudly uses ArmourBite® Power Wedges to help maintain optimal spacing between an athlete’s teeth. It’s uniquely shaped and counteracts the negative effects of jaw clenching. The ArmourBite® multi-patented technology has helped athletes unleash their full potential and perform better without clenching their jaws.

Reasons to Wear a Mouth Guard

Wearing a custom mouth guard can help athletes in several other ways, including:

  • Protecting your teeth against high impact
  • Preventing neck and jaw injuries
  • Reducing soft tissue damage
  • Reducing concussion effects
