Mouthguards - Fact and Fiction

Mouthguards - Fact and Fiction

The American Dental Association and Sports Medicine Societies recommend a properly fitted mouth guard for protection during sports that can involve contact.

Dental injury is unexpected, immediate and permanent. The American Dental Association and Sports Medicine Societies recommend a properly fitted mouth guard for protection during sports that can involve contact.  Impact studies have shown that wearing any type of mouthguard reduces the risk of tooth injury compared with not wearing a mouthguard.  A custom-made mouthguard is most comfortable and best tolerated interfering minimally with breathing, speaking and swallowing.

Specialization in Pediatric Dentistry

University Pediatric Dentistry started in 1989 as a way for pediatric dental residents to gain clinical understanding of advanced diagnostic and surgical procedures. While working at our offices, residents also gain knowledge of child psychology and clinical management, oral pathology, child-related pharmacology, radiology, child development, management of oral/facial trauma, care for patients with special needs, conscious sedation, and general anesthesia. 

Since our founding, we’ve expanded to multiple locations throughout the Buffalo region specializing in virtually every aspect of infant to adult oral health care, from simple check-ups to complex oral surgeries. We are the Western New York dental health care experts.

At UPD, we have fifteen wonderful dentists, some of which are faculty and teachers at the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. They are all highly trained in their area of expertise. Our team of dentists work together to ensure the oral health of our community alongside residents, dental assistants, dental hygienists, surgical technicians, clerical staff, and administration.

That being said, let’s talk about some of the roles you will see across our seven sites.
