If you are active in any contact sport, you know that protection is one of the most important things you can do to keep yourself healthy and safe. Most athletes know the importance of wearing the proper footwear for the sport they’re involved in, but many forget to protect one of their most valuable assets – their smile!
Just as you wouldn’t cut corners on your athletic wear, the same is true for your mouth guard. At Alan Pressman DMD in Spring Valley, we know that you have choices when it comes to mouth guards, but it’s important that you know that just because something is readily available online, it doesn’t mean it’s the best option for you.
You probably had to try on dozens of pairs of shoes before you found the pair that worked best for your anatomy. The same is true when it comes to a dental mouth guard. While you can purchase mouth guards over the counter, with some claiming to be adaptable to fit your mouth, there is nothing as custom fitting as a professionally fitted mouth guard from Alan Pressman DMD.
An impression of your teeth is made using advanced technology to assure you get the maximum protection for your mouth while also affording maximum comfort. Many patients complain that stock mouth guards are uncomfortable or they hinder their ability to speak clearly. And in some instances, some patients have reported difficulty breathing when they’ve used over the counter mouth guards.
When you book your appointment for a custom mouth guard in our conveniently located Spring Valley office, you can rest assured that you will be treated as the individual athlete that you are. We will take time to understand your needs, make recommendations that will afford you the maximum protection, and provide you with the perfect mouth guard that will offer years of protection for your smile.
