Wearing a mouthguard is an important precaution for athletes of all ages and abilities, helping to protect against chipped or broken teeth, root and bone damage, and tooth loss. For a small cost, a properly fitted mouthguard can prevent anxiety, risk, injury, pain, suffering, and can even prevent years of dental treatment. Whether you’re on the court, on the rink, or on the field, Dr. Dipika Shah, DDS, can prepare a custom-fitted mouthguard for her athletic patients.
Not only do mouthguards protect the teeth, but they also protect the head against a blow to the jaw that can result in a concussion and/or loss of consciousness. For the highest level of comfort and protection, you should always visit a dentist for a custom mouthguard fitting. Custom mouthguards are made from exact and precise models of an individual’s own teeth and are made of resilient and tear resistant materials to ensure a proper fit.
