Mouth Guards Plano, TX
Protect your family’s smiles with mouth guards from Plano, TX, dentist
They say an ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure, and no-where-nowhere is that truer than in dentistry. At Southfork Dental in Irving and Plano, TX Dr. Bindu Kolli helps patients across the Plano and Frisco area, safeguard their smiles with comfortable, custom-fitted mouth guards.
Why Plano, TX patients use mouth guards?
- Active lifestyle – A sports injury could leave your child with a dental issue that continues to impact appearance and oral function for a lifetime. A custom-fitted dental mouth guard made of resilient thermoplastic material provides superior protection for front teeth, most vulnerable to contact with an elbow, puck, ball, or the floor. The guard cushions shock from blows that cause jaws to come together abruptly, and thus may reduce risk of concussions.
- Bruxism – A mouth guard for teeth grinding and clenching reduces extreme force that leads to chips, fractures, and nerve damage – ultimately requiring extensive dental work. A bruxism guard also diminishes strain on jaw joints that, without treatment, may trigger TMJ dysfunction, headaches, and migraines.
Why see Dr. Kolli for mouth guards?
Retail and drug stores usually have an aisle of mouth guards. The problem is, your mouth is not quite like anyone else’s. Off-the-shelf appliances or boil-and-bite guards do not precisely fit the shape of your teeth or the arch of your jaw. A bulky, cumbersome sports guard that does not let the athlete breathe freely inhibits performance. An uncomfortable snoring appliance will likely end up in the nightstand drawer rather than getting used regularly. An ill-fitted bruxism guard can cause more problems than it is intended to address.
Dr. Kolli has the expertise to determine the correct type of mouth guard for your need; one that effectively protects your teeth and health. Her appliances are made of high-quality materials that resist bite-through and are cost effective in the long term.
Your smile deserves customized protection. Call 469-535-6939 to talk with Dr. Kolli about mouth guard options.
