Protect Your Teeth With Oakmont, PA Mouthguards

The American Dental Association (ADA) says that athletes who don’t wear teeth protection are 60 times more likely to suffer dental damage than those who do. In addition, several dental organizations, including the ADA and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), recommend wearing an athletic mouthguard for all high-impact sports.

Mouthguards Play an Essential Role in Dental Care & Prevention

Everybody wants to do what’s best for their smile. The problem is, we’re not always aware of things that could potentially harm it.

Part of our duty as a family dentist is to help educate our patients on the best ways to take care of their teeth. That’s one reason Dr. Resek stresses the importance of wearing a custom mouthguard. It can help protect your smile in ways you might not have thought about.

Teeth grinding is a common occurrence while sleeping, although many people don’t know they do it. Without intervention, teeth grinding can cause damage to tooth enamel, and it has also been linked to migraine and tension headaches.

However, a custom mouthguard molded to your unique set of teeth will provide protection against dental damage and help prevent headaches. A quick exam in our office will reveal if you’re a teeth grinder who could benefit from this treatment.

If you or your child play high-impact sports or regularly engage in athletic activity, then do your teeth a favor – get them some protection! High-impact sports includes any sport that involves:

  • Frequent changes in speed or direction (running, skating, biking)
  • Frequent jumping
  • Flying objects like balls and pucks
  • Frequent physical contact between athletes (combat and contact sports)

Wearing a custom mouthguard during these types of sports will be more comfortable and provide a greater level of protection than using a stock or boil-and-bite mouthguard. Plus, if you are an orthodontic patient, a mouthpiece made just for you will accommodate your braces or aligners better.
