Protect Your Smile with a Custom Athletic Mouthguards
If you are looking for a dentist families have trusted for years, we invite you to experience the exceptional level of care available at Gentle Dental Care, the office of Dr. Keith O. Gerber. With the latest in state-of-the-art dental technology and a unique, patient-centered approach, Dr. Gerber provides athletes from throughout Tyler and the surrounding areas with custom athletic mouthguards proven to reduce injuries during gameplay.
The American Dental Association and your Tyler, TX dentist, Dr. Gerber, avidly recommend the use of a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard in any contact sport activity. It is estimated that approximately 200,000 injuries are prevented each year due to these athletic oral appliances, and their protective properties cannot be emphasized enough. With a custom athletic mouthguard from Dr. Gerber, you or your children are safeguarded against common orofacial injuries sustained during gameplay, including the following:
- Tooth extrusion – The tooth is partially displaced due to trauma
- Tooth intrusion – The tooth is driven into the alveolar bone, or the part of the jaw bone that contains tooth sockets
- Fractures to crowns and roots
- TMJ injuries
- Avulsed tooth – Tooth has been completely knocked out
- Soft tissue injuries – Lacerations or contusions of the lips, gums, cheeks, and tongue
- Broken jaw
While it is common to see generic mouthguards for sale on the shelves of nearly any sporting goods store, the fact is that these oral appliances simply cannot offer the level of protection you or your child needs on the field, on the court, or wherever you happen to play contact sports. With a custom athletic mouthguard, you can rest assured that your teeth, gums, tongue, lip, and jaw are receiving the highest level of protection possible. The thickness and fit of a custom oral appliance is precisely measured to suit only your dentition, ensuring a flawlessly comfortable fit.
