Dr. J. Wesley Anderson, Jr. has custom athletic mouthguards available at his Virginia Beach, VA dentist office. Ordering things online has simplified our lives, but what you see is not always what you get. The one-size-fits-all athletic mouthguards you find online often fit poorly and can make it more difficult to breathe. Research shows that custom-made athletic mouthguards can be better at protecting your teeth.
Now, you can get custom-made athletic mouthguards from the Virginia Beach, VA dentist your family already trusts.
Athletic Mouthguards Keep Your Teeth Safe
Custom-made athletic mouthguards from Dr. Anderson are tailored to your or your child’s exact needs based on your type of activity, your teeth and gums, and your jaw. Our sports guards are made from a strong, flexible material that comfortably covers your teeth.
Sports-Related Injuries Are Incredibly Common
More than 600,000 people visit the emergency room every year for sports-related dental injuries. A custom-made athletic mouthguard will absorb the shock from an impact, so your teeth aren’t damaged. It can also help protect the inside of your cheeks and your tongue from injury.
While most people know you should wear a mouthguard for contact sports like football, even non-contact sports like gymnastics, skateboarding, and biking can result in accidents that damage your teeth.
Athletic Mouthguards Are For Adults, Too
If you have teeth and are athletic, a sports mouthguard is for you. However, children’s mouths are still changing, so we do recommend bringing their athletic mouthguard to their dental checkups. We can review the fit and advise whether or not the guard needs to be replaced.
Replacing teeth knocked out while playing sports is painful, costly, and easily prevented. Don’t order an athletic mouthguard from a website. Get custom athletic mouthguards for you and your family from the family dentist our community has trusted since 1988. We can also get you fitted for a mouthguard to protect your smile from teeth grinding damage. Call our dental office at (757) 464-1964 or use our convenient online form.
