Custom Mouth Guards
The best way to prevent dental injuries while
playing your favorite sport is a custom mouth guard.
Custom mouth guards provide the best protection
and are more comfortable than store bought
universal or boil-and-bite guards. They are less
bulky allowing you to breath easier, communicate
with teammates, and focus on the game for optimal
performance. They are fit specifically to your mouth
and are designed for the impact needs of the sport
you play. They can be customized with colors,
designs, and more!
Dental injuries are not uncommon in many sports. If you have trauma to your teeth it is important to be evaluated by your dentist. Below you will find a list of common sports related dental injuries.
Avulsion - Tooth knocked out of your mouth. If this occurs and you are not able to reposition the tooth yourself, it is best to store it in a glass of milk and bring it in to your dentist immediately. The success of reimplantation is greatly reduced if the tooth becomes dried out or remains out of the socket for more than 30 minutes. Once reimplanted, your dentist will need to splint the tooth in place prior to deciding on any further treatment.
Displacement - Tooth still in your mouth but in wrong position. Like avulsion, it is important to get your tooth back into it's original position. You may do this yourself or have someone do it for you if you can't get into your dentist immediately. Once reimplanted, your dentist will need to splint the tooth in place prior to deciding on any further treatment.
Fracture - Tooth is broken. Fractures vary in severity and location. The smallest fractures can be monitored while a more sever break can mean the end of the tooth's lifespan in your mouth.
