There are a lot of challenges that stem from being actively involved in the practicing of a sport and dental injuries are undoubtedly amongst the most common ones. This is why athletic mouthguards are a very important piece of your sporting equipment that can protect your smile while you’re doing your favorite sport.
If you’re actively practicing a sport that threatens the condition of your teeth and you’re looking for an athletic mouthguards dentist in Albuquerque, make an appointment with Dr. Gallegos and we can help you have the protection you need. We at Gallegos Family Dentistry offer custom athletic mouthguards which are custom made specifically for athletes in order to prevent any injury while playing sports.
To make your custom athletic mouthguard, we are going to need a few impressions of your mouth. This procedure is painless and easy so there’s nothing to worry about.
Once we have the impressions, we send them to our dental lab where your custom fitted guard is tailored according to the specifications of your mouth, as noted by Dr. Gallegos. It takes about 2 weeks for the mouthguard to be made and then you will get it in our office. At the delivery appointment, Dr. Gallegos will check if everything fits perfectly and will make any adjustment of the guard if needed. He will gladly answer all of your questions and would provide you with the handling instructions of the guard so that you take good care of it.
