Sports dentistry and Mouthguards

Sports dentistry and Mouthguards

Dental injuries are most common when playing sports. Injuries are painful and sometimes have a permanent impact on the child's dental health. 

Sports Dentistry

Children are active in nature and love spending time outdoors playing different kinds of sports. Sports activities include a wide array of physical contact with other persons and objects such as the ball, bat, racket etc. 

Mouth Guards

At Pandit Clinic, we have found a solution that allows children to play as much as they want without having to worry about injuries. It is nothing but a simple, revolutionary device called the mouthguard. The mouthguard is custom made by our pediatric dentistry practice to fit your child’s mouth perfectly. It protects the teeth and jawline, preventing any serious injuries. 

Mouthguards are individually designed devices for the mouth that cover the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums by a cushioning effect.

The Process For Developing The Perfect Mouthguard

  • We will make an impression of your child's teeth in our clinic.
  • The mouth guard is then fabricated over the dental model in the laboratory.
  • An effective mouth guard is comfortable, resists tears, is durable and easy to clean, and does not restrict your breathing or speech.

Functions Mouthguards

  • Mouthguards prevent laceration and bruising during impact by acting as a buffer between the soft tissues of the lips and cheeks, and teeth.
  • Mouthguards prevent tooth fractures or dislocations by cushioning the teeth from direct blows while redistributing the forces of impact.
  • Opposing teeth are protected from seismic contact with each other.
  • The mandible is afforded elastic, recuperative support that can prevent fracture or damage to the unsupported angle of the lower jaw.
  • Mouthguards help reduce neurologic injury by acting as shock absorbers between the upper and lower jaws.
  • Mouthguards provide a psychological benefit to athletes. Many findings suggest sportspersons feel more confident and aggressive when they have the proper protection.
