Your enamel, the outer layer of your smile, is the strongest material in your body. However, it still needs protection from all that life throws at you. Whether it’s physical activity, or grinding your teeth, we offer oral appliances that can protect your smile from harm and keep you comfortable. Read on to learn more about our custom-made mouthguards and nightguards.
Whether you or a loved one plays sports, or maybe you just like physical activity, it’s important to wear a mouthguard. It’s vital to protect your teeth because they become susceptible to injury, trauma, and damage during activity. In fact, injuries like chips, cracks, fractures, and lost teeth are at least 60 times more likely to occur if you aren’t wearing a mouthguard. Most people think of using mouthguards in rough sports like football or hockey, but studies show that around 40% of injuries in athletes below 18 occur in sports like baseball and gymnastics.
Unlike store bought products, our mouthguards are custom-made to fit snugly around each for your teeth for optimal protection. They are designed to not only protect your smile, but they also decrease the amount of concussion your head and jaw can experience during trauma.
We offer personalized mouthguards because we want our patients to have the best defense against dental injury. When taking a hard hit or even watching your little one play on the monkey bars, having a quality piece of smile protection will give you the confidence and peace of mind you need.
Products found in-store will only last you a season and they’re not custom-fitted for the most comfort and effectiveness. Plus, our mouthguards last for years if taken care of properly, which is much longer than anything you’ll be able to find at your local drugstore.
In addition to sports mouthguards, we also custom make nightguards to protect our patients’ smiles while they sleep. Millions of Americans suffer from bruxism, teeth grinding, that typically occurs during rest. The problem is that many patients don’t know it’s going on until they feel symptoms like chronic headaches, sore jaw, and worn or fractured teeth. At TriCorner Dentistry, we create personalized nightguards in McKinney to give our patients a comfortable and safe night’s sleep. These nightguards are made out of smooth, thin, yet durable plastic that can be comfortably worn during sleep or even to protect your teeth from grinding throughout the day.
