Did you know that around 40% of all dental injuries are sports-related regardless of an athlete’s age or level of play? That’s a lot of broken and knocked out teeth that probably took a lot of money to fix! To protect both your smile and your wallet, Dr. Gasper can provide you with a custom-made mouthguard from Under Armor. They are designed to be comfortable, protect the teeth and lips from sudden impacts, and they can even reduce your risk for sustaining concussions.
At Aesthetic Dentistry by Design, we can offer you Under Armor Performance Mouthwear, which is proven to not only shield the teeth, but enhance athlete performance as well. They’re designed to prevent the jaw from clenching, which naturally causes the body to release the stress hormone (cortisol) that can lead to premature fatigue. These mouthguards can also slightly reposition the jaw to increase the size of the airway, improving oxygen flow throughout the body.
Dr. Gasper can fit you for your own specially-designed mouthpiece in just 20 minutes, and you’ll receive it about 10 days later.
These mouthguards can work for adults, children, and pros alike. Research has also shown that with a properly fitted mouthguard, a person is much less likely to experience a concussion while playing because it braces the jaw and prevents force from radiating into the rest of the skull after an impact.
