Mouth Guards in

Mouth guards are worn by athletes of all ages to protect their teeth during practice and competition. Wearing one of these ingenious devices makes it much less likely for an individual to sustain a serious oral injury. Remember, just one hard hit can lead to a lifetime of oral health troubles. For that reason, our experts strongly recommend the use of mouth guards for any patient who participates in contact sports or activities.

Mouth Guards in Tampa

Studies have shown that mouth guards can reduce the likelihood of the following:

  • Damaged and lost teeth
  • Structural oral damage
  • Oral Lacerations
  • Concussions and trauma

Over-the-counter mouth guards will provide some level of protection, but the athletic mouth guards from Westchase Smiles Institute Institute are all custom-made, and they offer much higher levels of protection than store-bought alternatives. By custom-designing our mouth guards, we can ensure that they provide the best overall fit and protection for the user. This also allows our mouth guards to fit perfectly. Most of our patients who use mouth guards from our practice find that they do not interfere with their usual breathing or speaking. We also take great pride in using the highest-quality materials available so that they last longer and guarantee maximum comfort and protection.

Custom-making our mouth guards does mean that a patient will need to make at least two visits to our facility in order to receive one. We must take impressions of the patient’s teeth and have the appliance constructed in an off-site dental laboratory. Once the mouth guard is ready, the patient can return to pick it up.

Westchase Smiles Institute Institute also offers night guards that are used for treating bruxism. This is a condition that causes a person to unknowingly clench and grind their teeth while they are asleep. There are many reasons a person might suffer from bruxism, but it is very important to protect the teeth when this problem occurs. By using a night guard, a person is much less likely to experience any chipped or cracked teeth, jaw pain, tension headaches, tooth fractures and worn-down tooth enamel. Our night guards feel very comfortable, and most patients report that they do not interfere with their normal sleeping in any way.

My father was in town for my sister's wedding and had one of his front fillings come out two days before the wedding. Dr. Cesar Chilmaza was able to get him last minute and did an amazing job. My father said that he did a better job fixing it than the original filling! Not only did he do a great job, he and his staff we so friendly and knowledgeable and did everything in their power to help take care of him. Thanks to Dr. Cesar my sister's wedding photos won't be a disaster!

Cesar is amazingly kind and patient with my endless questions. I'm ridiculously terrified of the dentist and they somehow understand my fears while gently coaxing me to follow the treatment plan they recommend. They're also open evenings for those of us still working. Simply put, they're quite delightful!
