Sport Mouth Guards
More than 5 million teeth are knocked out in sporting activities each year. While this number is staggering, the American Dental Association estimates that more than 200,000 oral injuries are prevented every year thanks to the use of PlaySafe® sports mouth guards.
PlaySafe is the most prescribed mouth guard in the U.S., Europe and Australia. An impression of your mouth is taken & the mouth guard is customized to fit your mouth ensuring maximum protection. Statistics show that when worn properly, a protective mouthpiece decreases the risk of oral injury by 99 percent.
While many sporting good stores sell mouth guards, these versions are not as effective as the PlaySafe sports mouthpiece offered by your denturist
If you or someone you know experiences severe tooth, jaw or facial muscle pain, it may be from the effects of grinding or clenching your teeth. The good news is Changing Smiles can provide a solution.
We prescribe a custom-made (Hard/Soft) Bite Splint, which offsets the pain caused by bruxing or grinding your teeth. A night guard is a proactive step to protect your existing healthy teeth. A clear, thin removable device, your custom-made bite splint is worn over your lower or upper teeth as you sleep. Some studies say that people who grind/clench their teeth often experience up to 80x normal wear and tear on their teeth when compared to those who don’t.
Don’t worry though – a bite splint can help offset the effects that come with clenching/grinding your teeth and also protect your teeth from normal tooth wear as well.
