Safeguard Your Smile Against Injury
Do you have a teen or child who is active in sports? Are you a professional or amateur athlete? If so, you probably own a mouthguard. However, common boil-and-bite guards may not provide the protection and comfortable fit necessary to avoid broken or chipped teeth. At The Oasis Family Dental, our team provides custom-made Pro-form mouthguards to reduce the risk of dental damage.
What are Pro-form Mouthguards?
Pro-form mouthguards are designed to last longer and provide better protection than other store-bought guards. They are created using two layers of laminated vinyl. A lingual plate is then added that fits behind the incisors. The design helps distribute pressure and protect the teeth and the laminating process ensures the guards maintain their shape and fit after multiple use.
The Benefits of Mouthguards
Wearing a guard when you play sports offers a number of benefits for safeguarding function and integrity of your teeth against injury, including:
- Protecting teeth from chips, cracks, or becoming knocked-out
- Reduces the risk of cuts on the gums or cheeks
- Decreases the risk of jaw fractures and potentially even concussions
- Excellent for kids or teens receiving orthodontic treatment
- Colors can be customized
- Can last as long as a year in many cases
