Don’t Drop the Ball! Avoid Dental Damage with an Athletic Mouthguard

When you think of dental damage, you often think of cavities. But a stray elbow or wild throw during a game can do a real number on the teeth of your family athletes.

Doctor Douglas Callow on athletic mouthguards Read Transcript

At Douglas A. Callow, DDS Office, we believe the best way to deal with dental emergencies is to keep them from happening in the first place. So we offer custom athletic mouthguards to protect your teeth or your loved ones’ teeth during athletic activities.

To visit our Plymouth, MI dentist office to be fitted for a custom athletic mouthguard, call 734-404-7336.

Custom Mouthguards Offer Better Protection

“Boil-and-bite” mouthguards are widely available from retail stores. But they won’t protect your athletes’ teeth as well as a custom mouthguard. Here’s why our custom athletic mouthguards that are created from our Plymouth, MI office are better:

  • Custom fit. An off-the-shelf mouthguard will never fit as well as one created expressly for your athlete. We take impressions of teeth and other measurements for a custom fit. Ill-fitting mouthguards can make it tough to speak or even to breathe.
  • Right tool for the job. Different sports require different degrees of padding. Some mouthguards fit over the upper jaw only, while others fit over both upper and lower jaws. Dr. Douglas A. Callow, DDS can recommend which features will work best for your athlete.
  • Made to last. Custom mouthguards are made from more durable materials than off-the-shelf mouthguards, so they hold up better to abuse.
  • Custom colors. We can usually get a mouthguard in your team colors.

Your Athletes Need a Mouthguard

A custom mouthguard protects your athlete, or you, from a variety of injuries, including:

  • Broken teeth
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Soft tissue injury
  • Tooth displacement
  • Jaw fracture
