Mouth guards should be considered an essential piece of equipment for adults and children who participate in contact sports or activities. These protective devices can prevent serious damage to the teeth and mouth.
Just one oral injury can produce severe consequences that require extensive corrections and repairs. By simply wearing a protective mouth guard, many of these types of injuries can be avoided.
At Southern Dental Associates at Katy, we take pride in providing our patients with top-quality, custom-made mouth guards in Katy. While standard mouth guards can be purchased in sporting goods stores, a custom made device will have a proper fit that provides far better protection and comfort for athletes of all ages. Our mouth guards are created from top-quality materials that are strong and comfortable. Unlike the over-the-counter type, they will allow you to speak and breathe normally.
Our mouth guards work great for kids and adults and athletes of all skill levels. They help prevent a wide variety of oral issues, including:
In order to get your custom mouth guard, you will need to make two visits to our office. During your first appointment, we will take impressions of your teeth. These will be used to create your mouth guard. Once it is ready, you will come back in, and we will confirm the fit is perfect and comfortable.
Southern Dental Associates at Katy also provides night guards for our patients who suffer from bruxism which is nighttime clenching and grinding. People who suffer from bruxism can experience serious dental issues including worn down teeth, jaw pain and damage, teeth fractures and other oral injuries. A night guard will often provide relief from these issues.
Wearing a high-quality, custom-made mouth guard can help prevent severe oral injury. We encourage all of our active patients or those who suffer from bruxism to ask us about mouth guards. Schedule your appointment today. You can reach us at (281) 398-4132.
