A custom athletic mouthguard offers many advantages over standard store-bought versions. It fits snugly around your teeth, ensuring optimal protection and comfort while playing. Since it's made specifically for you based on an impression of your teeth taken by a dentist – unlike store-bought varieties – the mouth guard will fit more securely which minimizes the risk of injury while playing.

Despite its benefits for sports players, research has also found that wearing a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard may also help reduce symptoms associated with TMJ/TMD since it acts as a shock absorber between your upper and lower teeth. This prevents involuntary tooth grinding which can place unnecessary strain on the jaw muscles and joints leading to disrupted sleep patterns and chronic pain throughout the day. Wearing an appropriate protective device such as an athletic mouthguard if you have been diagnosed with TMD can prevent further damage to the jaw joints while also providing some relief from painful symptoms associated with this condition.

Overall a custom athletic mouthguard offers superior protection compared to standard store-bought versions while also helping reduce uncomfortable symptoms related to TMJ/TMD. For those looking for improved oral health along with enhanced performance during physical activity – you should consider getting yourself fitted for one!

  • What is laser dentistry, and how is it used in dental treatments?
    Laser dentistry is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes a concentrated beam of light to treat different dental conditions. The laser's high energy can be used to remove decayed or damaged tissue, reshape gums, whiten teeth, and treat infections, among others. Laser dentistry is an alternative to traditional dental treatments that require incisions, sutures, and anesthesia.
  • How safe is laser dentistry?
    Laser dentistry is entirely safe when performed by a qualified and certified dentist. Dental lasers have been extensively researched and tested, and the FDA has approved them for use in various dental procedures. Laser dentistry procedures have fewer risks and complications compared to traditional treatments and are generally less painful.
  • Is laser dentistry more expensive than traditional treatments?
    Laser dentistry may cost more than traditional treatments, depending on the dental clinic and type of procedure performed. However, laser dentistry results in shorter healing times, less pain, and fewer complications, reducing the overall cost of the treatment and making it a worthwhile investment.
  • What are the benefits of laser dentistry?
    Laser dentistry comes with several benefits, including minimal to no pain, less bleeding and swelling, and reduced healing times. Additionally, it offers more precision and accuracy compared to traditional treatments, which can improve treatment outcomes. Laser dentistry is also ideal for patients who are anxious about undergoing dental procedures as the procedure is minimally invasive and does not require anesthesia.
  • What types of dental conditions can be treated with laser dentistry?
    Laser dentistry can treat various dental conditions, including cavities, gum diseases, teeth whitening, root canal infections, gum reshaping, and biopsies. Laser dentistry is a versatile technology that can be used in many dental procedures, replacing traditional treatments for some purposes.
  • Is laser dentistry an appropriate treatment for everyone?
    Laser dentistry is not suitable for everyone. For instance, laser dentistry cannot be used on patients with metal implants or patients with pacemakers. In addition, patients with severe dental conditions may require traditional treatment options. Our dental professionals will assess each patient's situation and recommend the best treatment options based on their dental history, current condition, and overall health.
