As an athlete, it is important to protect your body and your mouth from injury. When it comes to minimizing the risk of broken teeth or injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw, custom mouth guards from Aurora dentist, Dr. George P. Varkey, are the most effective options available. With so much over-the-counter, and boil-and-bite mouth guards readily available, it can be difficult to find something that is both comfortable and safe.
That’s why Dr. Varkey offers custom-fitted mouth guards for Chester, VA patients at United Smiles. Custom-fitted, professionally-made mouth guards are made from molds of your own teeth, which is why they provide the most comfort and protection– they are created specifically for you.
Custom Mouth Guards in Chester, VA
Dr. George P. Varkey will start by taking an impression of your teeth. The mold will then be sent to a dental leave where the mouth guard is created. In addition to being more comfortable than store-bought options, custom mouth guards in Chester, VA from United Smiles are also more durable because they are made of stronger materials. Custom mouth guards also offer more protection than their stock boil-and-bite counterparts that only cover the top row of teeth–custom mouth guards are designed to cover and protect each individual tooth.
Wearing a mouth guard is an important precaution for athletes of all ages and abilities, helping to protect against:
- Chipped or broken teeth
