Protecting Your Smile


What a way to kick off the summer with the victorious win of our very own Golden State Warriors!  Many of us get inspired and perhaps motivated to try getting into the sport ourselves or support our youngsters in such activities as basketball, baseball, soccer, and the like. But before we put on our gear, let us not forget the one very important piece that protects our smile, the mouthguard.


Although our teeth are the hardest structure in the body, they are not invincible to trauma. Unlike the nails that grow out every couple of weeks, our teeth do not. The teeth do not have the ability to regenerate or grow a new surface. When the tooth fractures due to trauma, it can be restored by other types of materials such as resin, porcelain or metals, and can be costly. Prevention is still the best option.


There are different types of mouthguards available, the custom-made or the self-molding ones. Whichever type you choose, if your smile is worth protecting, then it’s worth the investment.


Parkway Smiles Dental welcomes new patients. Give us a call at (925) 229-8890 to schedule an appointment. We are located a 1029 Arnold Drive, Suite 9, Martinez.
