Athletic mouthguards are protective devices worn over the teeth during sports or other high-impact activities to help prevent dental injuries, such as broken, chipped, or knocked-out teeth, as well as injuries to the lips, tongue, and soft tissues of the mouth. Additionally, they may help reduce the risk of concussions by absorbing and redistributing impact forces. Custom-made mouthguards offer superior fit, comfort, and protection compared to store-bought, boil-and-bite guards.

Indications for athletic mouthguards include:

  1. Individuals participating in contact sports or high-impact activities
  2. Athletes with braces or other orthodontic appliances
  3. Those with a history of dental injuries during sports

At Trident Smile Studio, Dr. Triplett will create a custom-fit athletic mouthguard designed to offer optimal protection, comfort, and durability. An impression of your teeth is taken, and the mouthguard is fabricated from high-quality materials, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit that won’t interfere with breathing or speaking.

Wearing a custom-made athletic mouthguard is a crucial preventive measure that significantly reduces the risk of dental injuries and concussions, promoting long-term oral health and overall well-being for athletes of all ages.
