Being Fit Starts in Your Mouth!
Dental treatment is essential for athletes in order to reach full physical potential at any time! This applies to leisure sports as well as professional athletes. Here, we consider especially those four criteria: check for a hidden inflammation focus, check for jaw repositioning, injury prevention in contact sports via a custom-tailored mouthguard, and nutrition.
Tooth or periodontium inflammations significantly affect your whole body reducing physical performance and overall well-being. Using a special dental probe, we examine teeth and gums to check for a potential focus of inflammation (see also: "open window effect"). Our practice utilizes digital X-ray to detect hidden inflammations in their initial stage. We further perform dental prophylaxis on a regular basis that is tailored to your individual risk profile.
A proper occlusion in sports depends on your mental state and a healthy synergy of teeth, masticatory muscles and mandibular joint. Dysponesis will impede the entire musculoskeletal system. Wearing a splint as well as consulting a physiotherapist are likely to show a beneficial effect on the athlete's performance.
Hockey, Basketball, American Football, Rugby, Martial Arts, Skating etc. might require using a mouthguard that protects your teeth effectively. We provide you with a mouthguard that does not impede breathing. Impression of lower and upper jaw serves as basis for preparing your dental protection.
Using saccharated gels and isotonic drinks to refill their energy storage is common among athletes. Since sugar and acid will damage enamel, intensive use of sugary fluids might trigger a deuteropathy.
Sport promotes health-this is common knowledge. Nevertheless, athletes are not excluded from viral/ bacterial infections! Hormonal correlations trigger a decrease in leukocytes after your workout which leads to a loophole for germs in your immune system.
