Mouthguards treatment to protect the smile available in Bermuda
While the smile is designed to provide chewing and speaking efficiency for life, sometimes problems can impact one’s oral health. That includes trauma and damage to the smile, often during high-impact sports and other activities that can increase the risk of a blow to the mouth. That is why we encourage patients to protect their smiles with the use of a custom mouthguard. Using a mouthguard to protect the smile is far less expensive—and damaging—than treatments needed to repair broken teeth.
What types of mouthguards are available?
Positive Image Dental provides professional-grade custom mouthguards for patients involved in high-contact sports that can put their smile at risk. These mouthguards are made of high-quality acrylics and are formed to the patient’s unique smile. And this ensures proper fit and function. Patients may also notice that over-the-counter places offer speciality mouthguards, including flavoured mouthguards, but many of these fail to work as effectively as a professionally-made appliance.
Where can I buy a mouthguard?
There are many places where patients can pick up an over-the-counter sports mouthguard for themselves, such as local drugstores and department stores. However, many of these fail to fit correctly and offer the best protection than a customized mouthguard made at a dental practice. We advise patients to ask their dentist about obtaining a mouthguard to reduce the risk of chipped, broken, or lost teeth while playing high-impact sports and other activities.
The mouthguard purchased at our practice far exceeds alternatives in function and protection, making them the most desirable choice for patients who are involved in sports such as:
- Field hockey
