Orthodontic Mouthguards At Curtis Orthodontics
Protect Your Teeth, Mouth, And Braces
Almost 40 percent of all dental injuries are sports-related. If you wear braces, contact sports don’t only put your teeth at risk; metal in an athlete’s mouth can introduce a host of new risks as well.
Customized Mouthguards From Curtis Orthodontics Protect You And Your Investment
Most contact sports require athletes to wear mouthguards. Properly fitted mouthguards help protect both an athlete’s teeth and the other athletes on the field. However, once we fit your braces, your mouthguard may not fit properly. An ill-fitting mouthguard is not only uncomfortable, but it’s also less effective at protecting you from impact, injury, and damage.
Braces are an investment worth protecting. Even if you don’t always wear a mouthguard while playing sports, you’ll want to reconsider while wearing braces. Stray balls and other athletes in contact with your orthodontic equipment can be a painful experience. Excessive contact can also damage brackets and cause delays in orthodontic treatment.
Investing in a mouthguard can make all the difference for you and your oral health. While participating in sports and other activities are fun, Dr. Curtis recommends that you protect your beautiful smile while doing so! Let’s talk about your unique and individual oral safety needs.
