Mouthguards are an essential preventative tool to use, especially if you or your child is engaged in high impact sports such as football, hockey, boxing or lacrosse. At Serene Dental, we'll recommend the ideal mouthguard to use based on the sports you or your child plays. These mouthguards are instrumental for absorbing the shock your teeth may experience during a sports injury to your teeth. With a mouthguard, you can avoid losing a tooth or fracturing your teeth. You can choose from three mouthguard types based on effectiveness and price:
- Stock mouthguards
- Custom-fitted latex mouthguards
- Mouth-formed mouthguards
Fractured Jaw and Fractured Teeth Repair
You'll get the help you need in the event your tooth and jaw are fractured. But it's important to put best practices into place to ensure your tooth can be reimplanted. Fractured teeth and jaws require immediate attention. So, contact us or head to the emergency room right away. Keep your mouth still and avoid moving your jaw to reduce pain.
With the help of Serene Dental, you'll get the understanding you need to correctly avoid teeth sports injuries. We'll teach you when to contact us or the hospital right away for handling sports-related teeth injuries, such as teeth injuries due to baseball, basketball, volleyball or skateboarding.
