Wear a Custom-Fit Mouthguard to Prevent Dental Damage

If you’ve ever used the boil-and-bite or one-size-fits-all mouthguards available at most sporting goods stores, you’ve probably noticed that they are not very comfortable. But that’s only part of the problem. Simply put, store-bought options do not work very well.

In contrast, custom athletic mouthguards from Dr. Wallin will fit comfortably and do an excellent job of protecting your teeth from injury. That’s because we take precise digital scans of your mouth before making your new appliance.

Many high-contact sports, such as football and hockey, require this kind of teeth protection. But a mouthguard should be worn during any physical activity where dental injuries are possible. Here are just some of the other activities you should wear mouth protection for:

  • Skateboarding
  • Roller-skating
  • Gymnastics
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Soccer
  • Horseback riding
  • Mountain biking
  • Skiing
  • Snowboarding

A professionally made mouthguard may be the difference between a dental emergency and manageable pain. Rather than chipping or even knocking out your teeth, you may only experience some minor swelling and soreness.

If you do happen to damage your teeth during physical activity, Dr. Wallin can recommend a variety of restorative dentistry options to repair or replace them.

Don’t run the risk of dental injury to you or a family member. Visit Silver Leaf Dentistry for athletic mouthguards in Longmont, CO. Call us today at 720-504-2539 to request an appointment.

Common Questions About Athletic Mouthguards

Why are athletic mouthguards important?

The most common reason to wear a mouthguard is to protect your teeth and gums while playing sports. Whether it is a contact sport or not, a well-made mouthguard is your best defense against blows to the mouth, teeth, gums, and jaw. Mouthguards can also be used to alleviate symptoms of teeth grinding and TMJ disorders.

How are athletic mouthguards made?

For any oral appliance to fit well and work effectively, it needs to be customized to the precise measurements of your mouth. Athletes who buy mass-produced guards from a sporting goods store will never find one that is sized comfortably or appropriately enough to provide full coverage and protection. We can create a mouthguard that allows you to move, breathe, and communicate easily while keeping your smile safe.

Are athletic mouthguards covered by insurance?

Your insurance policy may or may not cover a portion of the cost of your new mouthguard. We recommend checking with your individual carrier to see what your policy does and does not cover. We’ll work with you to maximize your insurance benefits. Plus, we offer flexible payment options including third-party financing through CareCredit.
