Although cosmetic dentistry in Tucson has come a long way, no one necessarily looks forward to having a dental crown placed if they don’t have to. You can avoid unnecessary restorations by taking the proper preventative measures and caring for your natural teeth now. Keep reading if you would like a brief overview of the benefits of wearing sports guards.
Protect Natural Teeth
Contact sports like ice hockey, football, and lacrosse may be more than games to you; they may be a way of life. Since winners never quit, consider being more proactive about protecting your teeth while you are on the court, ice, turf, or field. Talk to your dentist about a sports guard so you can ensure that your oral health lasts as long as your Hall of Fame career.
Protect Dental Restorations
Whether you have just had a crown placed or an implant installed, you are probably quite happy with your new dental restoration. You will want to take extra care of your restorations to keep them in functioning condition, especially while they heal. Fortunately you can do this with sports guards. Wearing your sports guard can help to protect your implants, veneers, and crowns just like it helps to protect your natural teeth. This can prevent you from having to go back to your dentist and have the restoration fixed.
Enjoy a Comfortable Fit
Store-bought sports guards may be bulky, uncomfortable, ineffective, or just plain ill fitting. Fortunately your dentist can fit you for your own personal mouth guard that is built to fit comfortably in your mouth. These custom sports guards will protect your teeth and restorations without distracting you or taking your mind out of the game.
