Maybe you aren’t spending hours each day training in the boxing ring.
And maybe you aren’t a football player.
But that doesn’t mean you don’t need a mouthguard!
We tend to assume that mouthguards are only necessary for very specific sports, but not only is that not true, mouthguards actually serve a variety of purposes outside of athletics.
In Lexington, KY, we create customized oral appliances for a number of reasons so our patients can feel better, avoid the risks of dental injuries and costly restorative dental treatment, and improve their health and quality of life.
Here are three reasons you might want to consider visiting our team this summer to get your own custom mouthguard:
- Protection – It doesn’t matter what kind of sport you play. The fact is that rigorous activity puts you at a higher risk for mishaps and accidents that affect your teeth and gums. Only a trained dentist can provide full, quality protection with a mouthguard that’s made especially for you. You’ll be able to breathe and communicate easily while wearing it and absorb much of the impact should you fall or get hit while hard at play.
- Better Sleep – If you snore loudly every night or consistently wake up feeling like you didn’t get much sleep the night before, you could be suffering from some form of sleep apnea, a breathing disorder that zaps your energy, impedes concentration and productivity, and puts your health at serious risk. A custom oral device can help you avoid the hassles of a CPAP machine yet still allow you to reach a deeper state of rest for better health and a better life.
- Healthier Teeth – Problems with the alignment of the jaw joint, or TMJ, can create pain and muscle tension in your head, face, jaw, neck, and shoulders. It can also be tied to involuntary grinding and clenching of your teeth and jaw that makes you more vulnerable to dental damage, decay, cavities, and more. To relieve the chronic pain of TMJ problems and protect your teeth from wear and tear, we can create a mouthguard that allows your jaw to naturally heal itself so you can feel better soon.
If any of these situations applies to you, then you could very well benefit from paying us a visit this summer to get a custom mouthguard from one of our Lexington dentists! Call Beaumont Family Dentistry today to schedule an appointment or visit us online.
