Preventive dentistry is the area of dentistry concerned with preventing dental problems before they become costly, painful or both. A large part of preventive dentistry is patient education. This includes learning the proper at-home dental care, nutrition, etc. Another aspect of preventive dentistry is oral hygiene through regular dental cleanings, fluoride treatments, mouthguards & more.
Mouthguards are an essential piece of sporting equipment for preventing mouth injury during sports & other physical activity. Mouthguards act as a cushion, protecting your teeth, tongue, gums, lips & cheeks from impacts to the face.
Though mouthguards can be purchased in stores, the most effective, best-fitting & comfortable mouthguards are custom-fitted by your dentist. Mouthguards from the dentist have been proven to be much better at preventing concussions &/or traumatic brain injury from an impact than over-the-counter ready-made or boil-&-bite mouthguards. Our custom-fit mouthguards are also more comfortable & are less likely to impede breathing & speech.
With a custom mouthguard from your dentist, you can keep smiling no matter what the competition throws at you. Call Hammond Street Dental Care today for a mouthguard consultation.
