If you play contact sports and need a custom sports mouthguard, call Premier Dentistry in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Nechama Brand and Dr. Abraham Stein create custom-fit mouthguards that can protect your teeth, gums, and oral appliances from damage.
Over-the-counter mouthguards can irritate the gums and may fall out during contact sports. These types of mouthguards aren’t specifically made to fit your mouth and do not provide adequate protection to the teeth, gums, and jaw. When professionally crafted, sports mouthguards stay in the mouth and make it easier to speak, drink, and play without distractions.
Learn more about the additional benefits that this general dental treatment provides compared to over-the-counter mouthguards below.
Benefits of Custom Sports Mouthguards
Custom sports mouthguards are made from thick durable plastic that prevents tooth and gum damage from collisions, falls, and accidents. Wearing a mouthguard can also reduce your chance of getting a concussion. When professionally fit, mouthguards are meant to fit comfortably and securely over the teeth.
With custom sports mouthguards, players can focus on the game instead of clenching their jaw to keep their mouthguard in place. In addition, properly fitting mouthguards allow patients to drink and speak clearly. We will take dental impressions to make sure that the mouthguard fits properly and stay in the mouth when you play.
Receiving a Sports Mouthguard
Patients can receive a custom mouthguard in about two visits to our Chicago, IL dental office. Our team will take dental impressions to ensure quality design and fit. Once the impression is taken, and the design is chosen, we will send the information to a local dental lab. During your second appointment in our office, we will fit your mouthguard and make any minor adjustments that are needed.
