Dental Mouth Guards in Ashburn VADental Mouthguards in Ashburn VA

 

When playing sports or engaging in an active recreational activity, your teeth are as vulnerable to injury as any other area on your body. Dental mouthguards are protective coverings that fit across your upper teeth to prevent trauma to your mouth. The American Dental Association recommends anyone playing a contact sport wear a dental mouthguard to preserve the look of their smile and oral health.

Although believe that dental mouthguards only prevent damage to teeth, this equipment will also significantly reduce the severity of force from a hit along the jaw that could otherwise transfer to the central nervous system near the bottom of the brain. In addition to tooth protection, dental mouthguards also prevent gum and soft tissue damage, broken jawbones, lip cuts, cheek cuts, and concussions during sports.

Dental mouthguards come in three varieties. Stock mouthguards and boil-and-bite mouthguards are both available as store-bought protective gear. The stock variety is non-adjustable and often uncomfortable, but boil-and-bite mouthguards, made of thermoplastic, are more comfortable because you can bite into the pliable plastic to create a custom mold.

Customized dental mouthguards provide superior oral and dental protection. They are dentist-approved and offer the most comfortable and reliable protection. Dr. Zia Rizvi will use a special material to make an impression of your teeth and craft the gear using the custom mold. Learn more about our dental night guards.
