No two smiles are the same, so the protective wear you and your children use should be just as unique. Mouthguards are insurance on the investment you make in you or your children’s healthy smile. As sports season comes into full swing, it’s time to think about how you’re going to protect that cherished smile, so you both feel confident and safe- ready to focus on the game.
Darien CT family dentist Dr. David Pereira emphasizes the benefits of custom fit sports mouthguards. Dr. Pereira can mold mouthguards for any level athlete from the professional to the first time little leaguer. As a family dentist, Dental Arts of Darien offers a comfortable and welcoming environment for all ages. Dental Arts of Darien’s custom fit mouthguard technology provides the best fitting mouthguard with optimal protection.
Make mouth guards a healthy habit by having your kid start young. Routine and consistency will make mouthguards a normal part of playing sports, instead of a nuisance. It’s never too early to have your kids start wearing sports mouthguards.
Studies show that custom mouthguards can help an athlete to conserve energy during play. Because custom fit mouthguards are perfectly molded to the mouth, your athlete isn’t using their energy to bite down on an ill fitting appliance you would buy over the counter. Custom mouthguards also make it easier to drink water while keeping the mouthguard in place so kids are less likely to remove, and lose, their mouthguards. Early studies are also suggesting that mouthguards may be linked to reducing mild concussions by absorbing some of the impact during a collision or accident on the field.
Protect all the athletes in your life by making an appointment in our Darien dentist office to be fit for sports mouthguards. During a brief consultation visit, Dr. Pereira will take impressions of your teeth that will be used to create the custom fit piece. These impressions will be used in a dental lab to fabricate your custom fit mouthguard. In just a few short weeks you will be ready to hit the field running with confidence that your mouth is protected, and your focus is on the game!
