Custom Sports Mouth Guard Fabrication
Sports Dentistry is the branch of sports medicine that deals with the prevention and treatment of dental injuries and related oral diseases associated with sport and exercise.
With the active lives we and our children lead there is an increasing need to use mouthguards to protect the teeth and jaws.
Unfortunately all too often we are faced with dental trauma that could have been avoided with the use of a mouthguard. It is estimated that the loss of even a single front tooth could cost $12,000 in dental treatment over a lifetime.
There is even increasing evidence and scientific study that shows that wearing a professionally fitted mouthguard could help prevent concussion caused by impacts to the jaw. There are also sports mouthguards that when fabricated to an optimized bite can enhance physical performance. Dr. Frascella has specialized laboratory equipment which allows him to fabricate a form fitted multi-layered mouthguard that far exceeds the quality of store bought boil and bite type appliances. These can be made in custom colors with names, numbers, and even team logos.
