Custom Athletic Mouthguards
At Meridian Campus Family Dental, we are deeply committed to protecting your smile with general dental care. Therefore, we are proud to offer custom athletic mouth guards to help patients retain a healthy and beautiful smile regardless of their level of play. A custom mouth guard should be considered an essential piece of equipment for any adult or child involved in contact sports. Mouth guards can prevent chipped or broken teeth, lip or cheek lacerations, mandibular injuries and even concussions. Statistics show that an athlete is 60 times more likely to sustain damage to the teeth when not wearing a protective mouth guard!
While you can buy a boil-and-bite mouth guard at your local sporting goods store, a custom athletic mouthguard offers valuable advantages. Our athletic mouth guards are not only made from safe and durable materials, but they are custom fabricated to fit your unique smile. This offers the best and most comfortable protection for your teeth. A custom mouth guard should be comfortable to wear for a prolonged period of time and should allow athletes to breathe and speak easily.
Dental Nightguards to Prevent Teeth Grinding
Mouth guards also have a critical role in protecting your smile if you have a teeth grinding habit. Teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, is often a sub-conscious habit that patients do while they sleep. Unfortunately, nighttime teeth grinding can lead to jaw discomfort, headaches and worn down teeth. To prevent these consequences, a dental nightguard can be worn. At Meridian Campus Family Dental, we proudly offer top quality nightguards for teeth grinding prevention. Not only are they comfortable and durable, but they can also save patients from costly and disruptive dental problems down the road.
