Mouthguards 1 San Antonio, TX | Cosmetic Dental Associates

If you have athletes in your family who are about to begin training for winter sports, you need to invest in the right protection for their smiles.

You can find what you need with custom athletic mouthguards at Cosmetic Dental Associates in San Antonio, TX!

Athletic Mouthguards Are A Great Gift For Your Smile!

Playing sports is worthwhile and rewarding, especially for younger children. It teaches them so much about effort, discipline, disappointments, and sportsmanship.

But it isn’t without risk.

That’s especially true for contact sports, given the increased risk for blunt injuries to the face, mouth, and head. It makes sense why you would need an athletic mouthguard!

It’s the only way to keep your teeth and gums safe from harm, which is a great gift for the athletic people in your family.

But it’s important to make a wise investment with your mouthguard.

A well-made mouthguard will cover teeth and gums effectively, and that can help you avoid costly reconstructive dental treatment down the road.

Custom mouthguards are also the best choice because it protects the athlete against jaw trauma and concussions.

*Save Yourself The Trouble Of Store-Bought Mouthguards*

For the same reason you wouldn’t buy a one-size-fits-all helmet for your child to wear during football season, you wouldn’t buy a mouthguard that’s mass-produced for consumers.

When something is made to fit anyone, then the truth is that it’s really made to fit no one.

No one person specifically, anyway.

Not only would a universally-sized mouthguard be uncomfortable to wear, it could block the athlete’s airway, and it could slip out of place when protection is needed most.

It’s just not safe.

*Trust Only The Professionals With Your Smile*

Dr. Moore is a highly-celebrated San Antonio, TX dentist who can create the most precise, customized fit you need in an athletic mouthguard.

That gives the athlete confidence that it will stay put and keep his or her teeth safe, and the special comfort for them to focus on their performance.

Another reason a professional mouthguard is a better choice is because a personalized fit allows easier breathing. You wouldn’t let your child wear any gear that was too big or too small, and the same rationale applies to mouthguards. For them to perform well during a game, they can’t be held back in any way by a breathing obstruction caused by a shifting, poorly-fitting mouthguard.
