We are happy to offer special, custom-fit mouth guards for our patients. At First Dental, we understand how serious dental injuries can be and how common they are in sports like football, basketball, hockey, boxing, rugby, and soccer. Contact and collision sports are the most common source of dental injuries, but non-contact activities like gymnastics or cheerleading also have inherent risk as well. Our team offers sports dentistry in southwest Kansas in order to prevent any serious damage from happening.
Dr. Ryan P. Lehmkuhler is committed to preventing dental damage, and a properly fitted mouth guard is one of the most effective ways to reduce the occurrence of sports-related dental injuries. Mouth guards are molded to your teeth and gums and provide a protective layer that dissipates forces on impact. This quick and easy process will protect participants from damaged gums, chipped teeth, or even knocked-out teeth. While a simple mouth guard in Dodge City, Kansas, is usually enough to prevent serious injuries, our dentist may recommend additional equipment to help prevent any tooth damage.
Dr. Ryan P. Lehmkuhler and the rest of our team are happy to answer any questions you have about mouth guards and sports dentistry. Call our office today to learn more.
