The American Association of Endodontists notes that athletic injuries are a common source of dental trauma. This is often the result of an accidental or unintentional blow to the face, and might also be associated with soft tissue trauma and joint injury.
To help minimize potential oral trauma many schools and athletic organizations require the use of a protective mouth guard during certain sports and activities. The stock guards and boil and bite mouth guards sold in sporting goods stores are typically inexpensive. Yet many athletes complain that these they fit uncomfortably and some hamper breathing.
If you are a contact sport athlete and you are unhappy with retail grade mouth guards you might want to consider scheduling a consultation appointment at Dr. Golgoun Habibi’s orthodontic clinic. In a situation like this he might be able to provide you with a custom mouth guard.
This soft, yet durable mouth piece is made from a special type of plastic that will be custom created to conform to the shape of your mouth and contours of your teeth It will also be designed for maximum ventilation and the free passage of air.
If you live in the Mountain View, California, area and you need a comfortable and effective mouth guard, you should call 650-623-0003 to schedule a consultation at Aesthetics & Essentials Dental Group’s orthodontic clinic.
