When playing a contact sport, a person is putting themselves at risk for major dental damage. Just one hard hit or fall can have serious consequences for one’s oral health. Luckily, custom-fit mouth guards are highly effective in reducing the risks of such injuries and keeping one’s oral structures protected when they take a blow to the mouth or face. These devices are so effective that many professional sports leagues have required their players to use them. Our practice offers custom-fit mouth guards for athletes of all ages and skill levels.
All of the mouth guards we offer are custom-made using impressions of the patient’s mouth. The customized fit provides the most effective protection for the individual, and it helps the device to feel as comfortable as possible. We construct our mouth guards using the highest-quality materials available, and they have been proven to be vastly superior to store-purchased alternatives. They also do not interfere with the user’s normal breathing or speaking.
Fairfield Smiles has provided mouth guards for football players, basketball players, soccer players, hockey players, baseball players, skateboarders, bikers and more. These devices have helped these athletes prevent serious injuries, including:
- Lost or damaged teeth
- Jawbone damage
- Oral lacerations
Fairfield Smiles also offers night guards that are designed to deal with bruxism. This is a condition that causes a person to unknowingly clench and grind their teeth while they are asleep. If the problem is left untreated, it can result in excessive wear and tear to the teeth and serious damage to the teeth and jaw. Our custom-made night guards are extremely effective in preventing these issues, and they do not disturb the wearer while sleeping.
A custom-fit athletic mouth guard or night guard can help prevent you from experiencing serious dental damage. A visit to Fairfield Smiles will allow us to get started. Please call us at 203-423-3833 to schedule an appointment.
