Protect Your Smile From Athletic Injuries

Here at Jeffery Spilman, DDS, we believe athletics are a great way for students to get involved in school. They’re also a great source of exercise and character building. What’s not so great is losing a tooth to an athletic injury. If you or your child does have a dental emergency, you can give our St. Petersburg, FL dentist office a call at 727-645-4727 for a same-day appointment. But we think the best course of action is to do everything possible to prevent injuries in the first place with athletic mouthguards!

Keep Your Teeth, Gums, And Lips Safe

It’s inevitable that you’re going to have some sort of fall, collision, or contact with equipment if you play sports, including:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Softball
  • Soccer
  • Hockey
  • Gymnastics
  • Skateboarding

Pretty much any athletic activity can result in a mouth injury! But that doesn’t mean you should avoid sports and exercise. A mouthguard protects your teeth, lips, and gums from blows to your head. Our custom-made smile protectors offer a comfortable fit and protective cover for your or your child’s teeth. We can even have them made to match your team colors!

So why not just grab a boil-and-bite mouthguard from the drugstore? This is one area where you don’t want to cut corners. Dental protection made just for you by your dentist is going to fit the best. That means it will cover your teeth and gums without shifting. It will also protect your lips from being damaged by your teeth during a collision. If it’s loose or split, that could result in serious harm.

Prevent Broken And Lost Teeth

We can think of numerous reasons to guard against tooth loss or damage. The primary one is that mouth injuries hurt!

  • Your teeth contain blood vessels and nerves. Any sort of serious impact is going to cause pain. Protect your teeth and spare the suffering!
  • Missing and broken teeth are also unsightly. You shouldn’t have to feel embarrassed about your smile because you like athletics. Keep your ivories in top shape by keeping them covered.
  • We can repair and replace your teeth in a way that is natural-looking and beautiful. But the reality is that a mouthguard is a lot less hassle than a root canal and crown.

Save your smile, your wallet, and your time by calling Dr. Jeffery Spilman at 727-645-4727 for your athletic mouthguards.
