Mouth Guards

Athletes at all levels use protective mouth guards to prevent injury to their mouth and oral structures when playing a contact sport. Mouth guards are worn over the teeth, and they feature a lightweight design that ensures outstanding protection and comfort, without affecting the wearer’s normal breathing or speaking. Studies have shown that mouth guards are highly effective in preventing tooth wear, oral injury and jaw problems when taking hits to the mouth. The oral care experts at ProSmiles Dental strongly recommend the use of mouth guards for all athletes because of the important benefits they provide.

Athletes who participate in contact sports and other physical activities face a high risk of oral injury and structural damage to the mouth. These risks can be greatly reduced by wearing a protective mouth guard that has been properly fitted. Additionally, mouth guards have been proven to reduce an athlete’s chances of experiencing a concussion and lacerations to the tongue, cheeks and lips.

While regular mouth guards are used during physical activities, night guards are used to protect a person’s teeth when they are asleep. Teeth can become damaged due to a condition called bruxism, which is characterized by an uncontrollable habit of clenching and grinding one’s teeth while sleeping. People who experience bruxism often develop excessive tooth wear, jaw discomfort, headaches and tooth fractures. These problems can often be eliminated just by wearing a night guard while sleeping.

"I've been looking for a new dentist after dealing with a few duds, and I've found where I'm going to stay. The office is very neat, clean, and modern, which is reassuring when walking in for the first time. Everyone there, from front office staff, to dental assistants, to the dentist I saw were all wonderful. They took good care of me and got me set up for regular visits in the future that I'm actually excited about. Bonus: There's Netflix to peruse while sitting in the dental chair. I'm sold!"

"This dentistry is the best ever. The receptionists and doctor was totally out of this world. They explained everything from the procedures to the cost before anything was done. Very friendly and gentle. I couldn't believe that when the doctor pulled my tooth that couldn't be saved, it was over just like that. I didn't even know he pulled it. That's how gentle this doctor was. I will highly recommend this place Prosmiles. Hands down!!!"
