You can come to us for custom-made mouthguards, which can have some important benefits for you.
1. Play Safer
Athletes who don’t wear mouthguards are 60 times more likely to suffer dental injuries than athletes who do wear them, according to the American Dental Association. The ADA also recommends mouthguards for more than just football and boxing. You should wear a mouthguard if your sport involves physical contact, hitting or throwing something, changing speeds and directions, and jumping.
2. Stop Headaches
If you grind your teeth in your sleep, you may wake up frequently with headaches and jaw pain. A night guard is a kind of mouthguard that will prevent the grinding and reduce damage to your teeth.
3. Sleep Better
If you suffer from sleep apnea, you are not getting deep, quality sleeping. More than likely, you are snoring loudly and persistently as well. A sleep apnea oral appliance is can stop your snoring and allow you to get the rest you want and deserve.
