Protecting Rocky River Smile with Mouthguards

An active lifestyle often includes athletic activities. While exercise and organized sports can improve your whole health, it's important to protect your smile when you're in the game. We encourage our patients to wear custom-fitted mouthguards during most sports activities.

When you or a loved one needs a mouthguard, you can choose from over-the-counter bite-and boil products or custom-fit appliances. Both styles will protect your teeth, but custom mouthguards generally offer a more comfortable fit. For a mouthguard, Dr. Eick will take an impression of your teeth and create a precisely molded acrylic appliance that's comfortable to wear. Remember to clean your mouthguard regularly with a toothbrush, and always dry it thoroughly before storing.

If you're an athlete, we salute your active lifestyle. Call today to schedule your appointment for a custom mouthguard to protect your priceless smile. From our Rocky River location, Dr. Eick and our team welcome residents of Fairview Park, Lakewood, Westlake, and the greater Cleveland area.
