Athletes: Looking for Protection and Performance?
Whether golf is your passion, hockey is your hobby, or football is your sport of choice, Athletic Mouth Guards can help protect your mouth while improving your performance. How? Scientifically created, Mouth Guards keeps you from being able to clench your jaw or teeth while you’re practicing or in the middle of a game—which keeps your body from releasing hormones that can slow you down and undermine your performance.
Athletic MouthGuards or mouthpieces work by alleviating the pressure on the temporomandibular joint, preventing you from clenching your jaw. Because you can’t clench your teeth together, your brain doesn’t send the signal to your body to release hormones associated with stress. The end result? You get to perform to your full potential.
Hundreds of professional athletes count on Mouth guards to help protect their teeth and help them perform to their potential. And the Mouth Guard is also recommended by trainers and coaches, as well as dentists! In fact, the performance-enhancing qualities of an Athletic Mouth Guard have been discussed in peer-reviewed journals; you can read the reports about the science behind the Bite Tech technology here.
Male and Female Athletes of Any Sport Can Benefit from Mouthguards.
Fitting Your Performance Mouth Guard
Getting a customized Performance Mouthguard or Performance Mouthpiece is both quick and easy, and can be done in conjunction with another planned visit to the dentist. We’ll make impressions of your teeth (top and/or bottom) and may also take a bite impression to ensure an optimal fit. After getting your impressions finished, we’ll call you when your Performance MouthGuard is ready for you to pick up—usually 2-7 days from when impressions were taken.
Customization and Care
For most althletes, one mouthguard will last an entire season, assuming you don’t chew on it or have some sort of drastic changes to your teeth or jaw in the interim.
Cleaning your Mouth Guard is easy and can be done with the same products you use to clean your teeth. Ask your hygienist or Dr. Dong Li for additional information about the best way to keep your MouthGuard clean.
