Protective Mouthguards Smart Smile Dentistry, Gainesville, FL

Protective, custom mouthguards in Gainesville.

Many people believe that injuries to the teeth and soft tissues of the mouth only occur in boxing, football and other contact sports, but the American Dental Association recommends that children and adults use protective mouth guards for noncontact sports and recreational activities as well. It may have never occurred to you that you need a mouth protector for gymnastics, skating or mountain biking, but any activity that places you at risk of a fall can lead to devastating injuries to the mouth and face.

Sport mouthguards are typically worn only on the upper teeth and are made of a soft, flexible material that covers the entire upper dental arch. These mouth protectors are designed to absorb the impact of a blow to the face, dissipating the forces of the hit to minimize the possibility of severe injuries to the teeth, jawbone, lips, gums, tongue and cheeks.

Custom mouthguard or stock mouthguard, which one is better for me or my child?

You can purchase a stock mouth protector or the boil-and-bite variety in sporting goods stores, but these products do not offer the same level of protection that you will receive with a custom oral mouth guard created by our Gainesville, Florida dentists. At Smart Smile Dentistry, we will design a mouth guard that fits your mouth perfectly and offers optimal comfort and effectiveness in preventing severe injuries during your favorite athletic activities.

Contact our dentist in Gainesville, FL for a custom mouthguard evaluation appointment.

Smart Smile Dentistry can help you fit the perfect, custom made mouthguard for you or your child. Contact our dentist, Dr. Samant DDS at Smart Smile Dentistry in our Gainesville location today at (352) 376-5120 to schedule your appointment to discuss the cost for the custom mouthguard you need.
