Sports are a great way to keep fit, but they can cause serious damage to your mouth. If you have an active lifestyle, Dr. Labbe, Dr. Staat, and associates may recommend getting fitted for a mouth guard. At Menta Dentistry, we offer customized mouth guards in Laredo, Texas, to protect our patients’ smiles. Please contact us today at 956-242-0223, and we can schedule your appointment with our dentists.
Athletic mouth guards, or sports mouth guards, are recommended for anyone who participates in a sport or recreational athletic activity. They are especially important for those who play high-contact sports, such as wresting, football, hockey, soccer or rugby.
An athletic mouth guard fits over your teeth, protecting your teeth, gums, cheeks, jaw and other oral structures from injury. These mouth guards also help to prevent neck injuries and keep your airways open so that you can breathe easier while playing.
There are many types of athletic mouth guards available, from generic stock mouth guards to custom-made mouth guards. A custom-made mouth guard is by far the superior option for protecting your smile. It is custom-designed to comfortable fit your mouth, and will provide greater protection from sports-related dental injuries than a stock mouth guard purchase off the shelf.
We encourage you to contact our office and schedule an appointment with our dentists to be fitted for a custom sports mouth guard. We look forward to seeing you soon!
