How can we help you?
We know you have many questions when it comes to your dental care – and rightly so!
Dr. Sigman spends a lot of time educating patients about their oral health so they have clear understanding of their treatment needs, and we always welcome questions from our patients.
Here are a few of the questions we hear the most. If your question is not answered here, feel free to give us a call.
Custom sports mouthgards are simply the best (and in our opinion, the only) way to protect your teeth and the surrounding tissues while you are participating in a contact sport. Custom mouth guards offer more comfort, protection and ability to breath and speak normally than cheap ‘boil-n-bite’ mouthgaurds bought from the sporting goods store. In our experience, we have never had one of our athletes suffer a traumatic dental injury while wearing one of our custom mouthguard.
Any sport where there might be contact! Including, but not limited to football, lacrosse, soccer, and especially basketball. The cost of replacing just a single tooth can be several thousand dollars. Custom mouthguards, made by Dr. Sigman, provide cheap insurance against these types of injuries. We also work with cyclists and endurance athletes who tend to brux, or clench, their teeth during competition. These athletes require even more specialized appliances that will prevent harm to their teeth from grinding, while maintianing an ability to maximize their respiratory capacity.
