Stop Injuries With Our Sports Guards

If your sport involves running, jumping, physical contact, or objects flying through the air, then you should take steps to protect your teeth when you take the court or the field.

Wearing a mouthguard makes you much less likely to suffer a dental injury. And the best protection comes from a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard, which we can make for you at our office. A custom-made mouthguard:

  • Is smaller than the boil-and-bite kinds you can find in stores
  • Is made with dental impressions, so it offers a more comfortable fit
  • Is less likely to interfere with breathing, drinking water, and talking to teammates

Our Teeth Grinding Treatment Can Save Your Teeth & Relieve Pain

Sports aren’t the only reason to protect your smile. Sometimes the biggest risk is yourself. Millions of Americans grind their teeth together in their sleep. This can:

  • Wear down the enamel of your teeth
  • Increase your risk of tooth decay and gum infections
  • Potentially lead to a TMJ disorder
  • Result in jaw, face, and neck pains
  • Cause frequent headaches or earaches

To help save your teeth, we can create a different kind of mouthguard or NTI splint that you can wear while you are asleep. This creates a barrier between your top and bottom teeth to stop grinding. It also can alleviate the pressure that leads to the various pains you may feel in and around your jaw.

Before you get in the game or get ready for bed, make sure you are taking steps to protect your smile. Call LakeCrest Dental at 918-205-4492 to get mouthguards in Broken Arrow for you and your family. You can also make an appointment online. We’re located near several schools, including Wolf Creek Elementary School, Oliver Middle School, and Broken Arrow Freshman Academy.

Common Questions About Mouthguards

How are mouthguards supposed to fit?

Mouthguards should fit snugly so they will stay in your mouth and also so they are comfortable. If your mouthguard isn’t comfortable, you may be tempted not to wear it, and it won’t do any good. We recommend a custom mouthguard, which fits better than one purchased from a store. Custom mouthguards also won’t require you to adjust the fit with a frustrating “boil and bite” process.

How do mouthguards help bruxism?

Mouthguards absorb the tremendous force that is generated when you grind your teeth, which can not only damage teeth but also cause additional problems like headaches and jaw pain. They also cover teeth to protect your enamel from the damaging effects of grinding. In some cases, they may also improve bite alignment. A misaligned bite can contribute to a bruxism problem.

How are custom mouthguards made?

Custom mouthguards are made using impressions of your teeth. That is what gives them a fit superior to store-bought mouthguards. They fit like they were made for you – because they were! Mouthguards that fit well, like the ones we make in-house, also feel more comfortable and are less likely to become dislodged.
