Contact sports such as ice hockey
And American football require athletes to use protective gear and equipment designed to prevent significant injury to the head, face, and body. Every athlete knows the importance of safety while playing their favourite sport, and as such they will often use gear and equipment like protective pads and a helmet to ensure that they do not incur career ending injuries. In the same way, athletic mouthguards are essential to ensure the safety of your teeth, gums, mouth, and overall dental health. Here at BWG dental centre, your dentist in house Bradford, Dr. Rebeca Riojas-Ozturk and the team are pleased to offer you athletic mouthwear that is designed to protect your teeth and mouth from the plethora of sports related injuries and accidents that you may encounter.
At BWG dental centre, your dentist on Barrie Street can assist you in choosing the mouthguard that is most suitable for you.
What it requires is a dental examination, where your dentist in Bradford will use the Itero digital scanner to digitally scan and map out your teeth. The image developed by the Itero scanner will then be delivered to a dental laboratory, where a custom built mouthguard will be designed and crafted for you. Upon your next dental appointment, your custom athletic mouthguard will be ready for use. Other options for athletic mouthguards include stock mouthguards or boil and bite mouthguards. These options are less ideal but can be effective when used correctly. Stock mouthguards are relatively inexpensive and are the most cost effective option, since they arrive pre moulded and ready to use upon purchase. Boil and bite mouthguards on the other hand are more customizable compared to stock mouthguards. It requires you to boil the mouthguard in hot water, then bite down on the mouthguard to have it custom fit to your teeth.
