Isn’t it nice when you can simplify your life all because of one handy tool?
Maybe that’s why some of us get such a thrill watching those “But wait, there’s more!” infomercials or when browsing the As-Seen-On-TV aisle in stores.
There’s a similar product only a dentist can give you that can serve several purposes to make your life better.
It’s a custom mouthguard.
But wait! There’s more!
You can get one right here in Plano, TX!
3 Potential Benefits of a Custom Mouthguard!
At 1st In Smiles, we offer custom mouthguards to patients who are facing a variety of oral and overall health risks or daily symptoms that make them feel miserable.
Here are three potential benefits of this one simple appliance!
*It Can Improve Your Sleep*
Feeling pretty tired lately?
Is your sleep partner feeling pretty tired lately?
There could actually be one problem behind it.
If you just can’t seem to catch up on sleep no matter how early you go to bed, or if your partner is lacking energy because your loud snoring keeps them up every night, a custom mouthguard might be the perfect solution!
More comfortable (not to mention more silent!) than a CPAP machine, a mouthguard can position your upper and lower jaw in such a way that allows air to flow freely through your airways while you sleep.
This can not only stop your persistent snoring, but it can give your body the full rest it needs to help improve your health, increase your energy, and even boost your mood!
*It Can Relieve Headache & Jaw Pain*
People who suffer from chronic headaches, migraines, and jaw pain often overlook the possibility that their symptoms are, in any way, connected.
But our team at 1st In Smiles can tell you that with one well-made mouthguard, patients can see a multitude of uncomfortable symptoms disappear!
That’s because TMJ disorder and teeth grinding are conditions that have fairly widespread, and often painful, ramifications, like:
*Muscle tension in the neck, face, and shoulders
*Headaches and migraines
*Lockjaw or popping noises when opening and closing the mouth
With a custom mouthguard that separates your upper and lower teeth, you can find relief from the pain and ease the tension being put on your jaw joint!
*It Can Save Your Smile*
If you or a member of your family participates in sports, this time of year especially warrants a custom mouthguard!
Contact sports like football and soccer are well underway in many parts of the country, which means your teeth and gums need the right protection.
Instead of the one-size-fits-all mouthguards in stores, you can breathe better, feel more comfortable, and maximize performance when your mouthguard is especially made by a dentist to fit you.
A proper fit will give you, or your child athlete, the full coverage needed that could mean the difference between saving or losing a tooth.
