    Benefits Of Sports Guards

    Despite the availability of over-the-counter mouthguards, it is recommended for athletes to get a customized sports guard as it offers better protection. Our high-grade sports guards in Houston, TX, offer several benefits, including:

    • They protect your teeth, gums, and oral tissues from harm caused by high-impact sports.
    • Mouthguards prevent your teeth from getting knocked out during sports activities.
    • They also act as a protective shield for your dental work, such as fillings, crowns, bridges, etc.
    • They help avoid soft tissue injuries that may cause severe bleeding or swelling.
    • They also prevent damage to your temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which is the joint that links the jaw to your skull.
    • By minimizing the force of impact on your jaws and skull, they help avoid the risk of concussion.

    Getting Sports Guards In Houston, TX

    If you engage in high-impact or athletic sports like football, basketball, baseball, or hockey, we recommend getting customized sports guards from our dental office. The process is fairly easy and does not cause pain or discomfort. Upon your visit, we will start by taking impressions of your upper and lower arch. We will also pay special attention to any sensitive areas in your mouth that are prone to oral injuries.

    Unlike over-the-counter mouthguards, our sports guards are tailored to fit the unique requirements of each patient. We ensure that they fit comfortably in your mouth and do not irritate the inner soft tissues. During your second appointment, we will test their fit and perform adjustments if necessary. With this level of protection, you will be ready to set off for your next big game!

    How To Clean And Maintain Your Sports Guard

    After receiving your personalized sports guards at our Houston, TX, practice, it is important to follow the usage and maintenance instructions given by our dentists. We recommend wearing your appliance right before participating in an athletic or sports activity. You can take it off after the game and clean it gently using a toothbrush. This helps remove plaque or debris, which may form due to consistent use.

    When the mouthguard is not in use, place it in its given container to avoid misplacement. If any issue arises with your appliance, you can reach out to our team for repair or replacement.
