Mouthguards for Athletes - Hamilton Dentist - Dr. Ricciardi
If you or a loved one is participating in a contact sport, it is very important to have a custom athletic mouthguard made to protect your teeth while you are playing. If you choose not to wear a mouthguard, you are putting yourself in danger of having your teeth needlessly knocked out or damaged. Part of what makes the athletic mouthguard so great at Joseph A. Ricciardi, DDS PC is that it is custom-made to fit your mouth and make your experience playing your favorite sport as comfortable and safe as possible.
Athletic Mouthguards to Protect Your Smile from Injury
It doesn’t take much contact to cause damage to your teeth while you are competing. A thrown elbow, a misjudged ball, or simply clenching your teeth as you run mile after mile can all result in thousands of dollars in dental repairs, not to mention the pain and discomfort that comes along with an injury of that scale.
Sure, you can get a mouthguard at any sporting goods store, but will it do the job? It may, but the biggest problem with stock mouthguards or boil and bite mouthguards is that they don’t fit your teeth very well. They are often very thick and too large for your mouth, which makes important things like communication on the field and breathing very difficult!
Instead, we recommend a custom athletic mouthguard in Hamilton, NJ made by Dr. Riccardi. We take an impression of your teeth and then create a guard to perfectly fit your smile. Custom mouthguards are thinner than what you would find in the store, which allows you the freedom to breathe comfortably and still be able to communicate with your teammates.
