One of the many valuable services we offer here at Parkland Smile Dental is mouthguards. These simple appliances, which resemble retainers and are typically made of strong, durable, comfortable plastic, are essential for use in playing many different types of sports, as well as for practical applications like wearing overnight to prevent teeth grinding.
What sport do you participate in? It pretty much doesn’t matter when it comes to our Hillhurst mouthguards, because there are very few athletic activities where they would not come in handy. Even in non-contact sports like running, there is always a risk of tripping and falling face first. Of course, it’s more obvious when the sport includes a hard object traveling at high speeds. Good examples include hockey, baseball, tennis, and racquetball, among others. It’s not just objects, though. Our Hillhurst mouthguards come in handy against inadvertent (or intention!) hitting with arms, elbows, feet, and even someone else’s head. There’s a lot going on usually, and a mouthguard offers crucial protection for your teeth. Also, if you have a jaw condition, including TMJ disorder, you may grind your teeth at night. This is a hazardous habit, and one that you’re not able to stop on your own. Again, it’s our mouthguard to the rescue. Fortunately, they are comfortable to wear, and are custom made to fit you with outstanding comfort. All you need do is visit our office. You will have impressions taken by our dentist and the dental lab will construct your piece to precise standards so it fits you snugly but comfortably.
There’s simply no good reason for you to take the risk of your teeth being harmed when there’s an easy way to keep them well shielded. Contact our office right now and schedule a convenient time to come in for a visit with our dentist. The sooner you take advantage of our Hillhurst mouthguards, the better off you will be.
