Protective mouth guards are crucial for any athlete who plays contact sports. Our custom-fit mouth guards provide the highest level of protection for competitors of all ages and skill levels.
A mouth guard is an oral appliance worn over the teeth to provide protection when playing a contact sport. If the user takes a hard hit, the mouth guard can cushion the blow and make it much less likely for the user to experience any major damage or injury. Anyone who regularly plays a contact sport should strongly consider wearing a mouth guard during practice and competition. Remember, just one hit or heavy blow can lead to a serious injury and a lifetime of oral health problems.
Some of the conditions that can be prevented by using a mouth guard include:
Our mouth guards are custom-built using the finest materials available. These devices are lightweight, and they should not interfere with the user’s breathing or speaking. These devices are also durable, and they can last for about two to three years before needing to be replaced.
To receive a mouth guard, a patient must make at least two visits to Broadway Dental.
This is because these are custom-built appliances, and they must be specially crafted in a dental laboratory. The first visit involves taking impressions of the patient’s teeth. We then forward the impressions to the dental lab for the mouth guard to be built. Once it is ready, the patient can return to pick it up and ensure it fits perfectly. The custom-design is a very important factor for our mouth guards, as it ensures that they offer the best possible fit, comfort and protection.
Broadway Dental also offers night guards for patients suffering from bruxism. This is a recurring condition that causes a person to unknowingly clench and grind their teeth while they are asleep. Bruxism is dangerous as it can lead to teeth fractures, jaw pain, tension headaches, chipped and cracked teeth and other problems. Wearing a night guard can go a long way towards preventing these issues. Just like our athletic mouth guards, our night guards are custom-designed to provide the optimal comfort and fit.
