Mouth Guards for Children and Adults
People who lead an active lifestyle and take part in contact sports such as hockey, rugby, American football, Lacrosse, etc. can reduce the risk of injury to their teeth and oral structures by wearing a custom dental mouth guard from the office of Pompano Family Dental. Mouth guards can also be used while sleeping at night for those who suffer from the problem of bruxism (the clenching and grinding of teeth due to stress and other factors). Our custom crafted mouth guards are much more comfortable, well-fitting and lighter as compared to store bought mouth guards, increasing the odds of patients consistently wearing them to protect their oral health.
A good quality mouth guard has the following characteristics:
- It is not bulky
- It is tasteless
- It is odorless
- It is resistant to wear and tear
- It is protective
- It is comfortable to wear
- It has great retention
- It has sufficient thickness in critical areas
Custom dental mouth guards remain the ideal choice for most people as they are designed for a perfect fit by taking molds and impressions of a person’s teeth and takes the individual’s oral care needs into account. The age of a teenage or child athlete and the possibility of accommodating space for growing teeth and jaws, can be taken care of with a custom-made guard.
If you are suffering from bruxism or are a player of sports where your mouth, teeth and jaw are prone to injuries, please contact our office for an appointment to get your custom dental mouth guard. The protection and cushioning offered by a mouth guard can prevent injury and damage to your teeth, jaw, gums and facial structures, thereby preventing the need for painful and extensive restorative dental treatments later.
