Dr. Hires and the staff of Hires Dental Care in Toledo emphasize the importance of maintaining a healthy smile for lasting dental health. This includes protecting the teeth and gums when participating in contact sports or activities with a mouth guard. Remember- teeth do not grow back!
Benefits of Custom Mouth Guards
Hires Dental Care offers custom sports mouth guards for maximum comfort and maximum protection. A custom fit mouth guard offers several key benefits for both dental health and personal performance on the field:
- Improved oxygen intake for better breathing and improved endurance
- A custom-fit allows for clearer speaking- and communication on the field
- Secure fit: won’t hurt or irritate the gums and reduces energy lost when biting down to hold the mouthguard in place
- Better injury protection than store-bought mouthguards
- More durable and lasts longer -saving you money in the end
A comfortable, custom fit mouth guard is typically worn more consistently, especially in young patients who may resist a poor fitting and uncomfortable over the counter option. If it is not being used- it can’t protect your teeth and gums. We can even make your mouthguard in your team colors- or a color of your choosing to make it fun to wear.
The mouth guard process is easy- and quick. After a brief visit for dental impressions used in making your custom appliance, we will fabricate your mouth guard in our Toledo dentist office in 3 days or less.
A custom mouth guard can be used for any contact sport or activity that presents a possible risk of tooth damage- and is recommended for patients of any age. It can also offer maximum, secure and comfortable protection for patients wearing a dental appliance or braces. Investing in a mouth guard can actually save you money in the long run by eliminating an emergency visit to Hires Dental Care for a mouth-related injury.
