Custom Under Armour Mouth Guard Options In Derry NH
We have something new and exciting at our pediatric dentistry office near Manchester NH and Salem NH! We can now offer our patients Under Armour™ mouth guard appliances.
The Under Armour mouth guard is an innovative new line of custom mouthguards and mouthpieces designed to improve athletic performance. The Under Armour mouth guard can help any athlete in or around Windham NH improve their strength, endurance, reaction time and reduce their athletic stress.
The Academy for Sports Dentistry recommends that male and female athletes playing sports such as football, basketball, softball and soccer wear a mouth guard. Our Derry NH dentists can fabricate custom mouthguards with Under Armour mouth guard. These custom mouthguards are fine quality, very comfortable, and essential to the athlete’s safety.
Custom mouthguards can reduce injuries to the mouth and jaws and are recommended during sporting activities, especially during contact based sports. Under Armour custom mouthguards have also been shown to reduce forces that can cause concussions.
Usually a custom made mouth guard is the most comfortable and the easiest to wear. Custom mouthguards should be replaced annually, especially if your child is growing.
WHY ARE CUSTOM MOUTHGUARDS THE BEST OPTION?
A custom mouth guard is formed specifically for your teeth, so it offers the best protection. Custom mouthguards are better than a mouth guard you buy at a store because they reduce the risk of injury, including: brain injuries or concussions, dislocation or fractures in your jaw, broken or lost teeth, or stress to jaw or neck. Custom mouthguards fit better than a standard mouth guard, so they feel comfortable in your mouth.
For our young patients at our office near Manchester who are undergoing orthodontic treatment, an orthodontic mouth guard must be worn as opposed to a custom made mouth guard. We provide a orthodontic mouth guard as part of our patient’s orthodontic contracts. Please let us know if you require a new orthodontic mouth guard at any time during your orthodontic treatment.
If you have jaw pain or headaches when you wake up in the morning, you may be clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth in your sleep. Not only is this painful, but grinding your teeth can wear down your teeth and make them easier to chip or crack. Night guards, which are custom mouthguards worn at night, are useful in patients who grind or clench their teeth while sleeping.
