It’s a dentist’s worst nightmare. You’re sliding into home plate and the catcher’s elbow collides with your mouth. Your two front teeth are devastated. Accidents like this happen all the time, and in all sports, but with just a little protection, the damage need not be catastrophic. With a small investment in a quality custom-fitted mouthguard, you can avoid costly emergency dental work in the future, and you can enjoy wearing a mouthguard that is comfortable to wear.
Boil-and-bite mouthguards offer very little protection and are not long-lasting. Find out how a custom-made dental mouthguard will protect your teeth. Please call 509-368-7788 (Spokane) or 509-228-3998 (Spokane Valley) or email Collins Dentistry & Aesthetics today for a mouthguard appointment at our Spokane or Spokane Valley location.
Beyond Protection – Athletic Excellence
Drs. Ken & Marnie Collins offer custom-fit mouthwear with Armourbite™ technology. This type of mouthwear, which can be made as a dental appliance or as a protective mouthguard, uses neuromuscular dentistry principles to reduce the burden of an imbalanced bite that can prevent you from performing to your maximum potential.
By reducing wasted energy used by imbalanced jaw muscles, eliminating spine deformation caused by a misaligned bite, and opening your airway, this type of mouthguard can help you achieve:
- Increased strength
- Extended endurance
- Faster reaction time
- Better workouts with less athletic stress
- Improved balance
- More repeatable performance
- Lower risk of dental injury (mouthguard only)
Whether you play football, hockey, or even golf, you’ll enjoy the improved performance you receive from a balanced bite.
How Mouthguards Are Made
Drs. Ken & Marnie Collins will take an impression of your bite to get the custom fit that is required for the safest fit and best performance. They will then send the impression to a dental lab that will create the mouthguard with a soft, durable plastic.
