Protecting your Teeth While you Exercise With OSO Athletic

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

shutterstock_580318669If you’re a keen athlete, you may be aware of the importance of protecting your teeth when you play sport, but what would you say if we told you that we could provide you with a gum shield, which doesn’t just protect you from dental injuries, but also enhances your performance? We are proud to be a provider for OSO Athletic, a game-changing mouth guard, which could give you that competitive edge.

About OSO Athletic

The OSO Athletic mouth guard is not your average piece of kit. This is so much more than a standard mouth guard. This device is specially designed to adjust to the contours and shape of your mouth, and it alters the position of your jaw when you put it in your mouth. By doing this, you can enjoy the highest standards of protection, as well as a lower risk of injury and muscle pain and increased balance, power and strength. Many athletes experience discomfort when they wear mouth guards, but these appliances are developed based on precise measurements and images. By adjusting the position of the jaw, muscle contraction is more efficient, and you’ll have a lower risk of jaw pain, stiffness and aches and pains in the neck, shoulders and back.

Who can benefit from the OSO Athletic?

The OSO Athletic can benefit anyone who participates in sports or activities that carry a risk of facial or dental injuries. This includes sports such as hockey, rugby and lacrosse, as well as fighting sports and martial arts. You don’t have to be an elite performer to enjoy the advantages of using an OSO Athletic mouth guard, and we strongly recommend competitors of all abilities to consider using this incredible innovation.

Why Protecting Your Teeth During Sporting Activities Is Essential

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

2112592_blogYou only get one set of adult teeth to last a lifetime, so it’s essential to take steps to protect your teeth and look after them as best you can. When playing sport, there is often a risk of injury and just as you wouldn’t think twice about wearing shin pads or a helmet, you should always remember to wear a mouth guard. If you play contact sports or you participate in martial arts or fighting sports, it’s essential to invest in a good mouth guard.

At City Dental Leeds, we are proud to be one of just a few practices in the UK to offer the amazing OSO Athletic mouth guard, an advanced gum shield, which offers so much more than the protection provided by a standard gum shield. This innovative appliance automatically adjusts the position of the jaw to optimise muscular function and reduce tension and pressure around the facial muscles.

How does the OSO Athletic work and what are the benefits?

Each OSO Athletic mouth guard is custom-designed and it is programmed to modify the placement of the jaw to ensure that it is in the best possible position. This reduces tension in the facial muscles and the TMJ (temporomandibular joint), lowering the risk of unpleasant symptoms, such as stiffness, pain and clicking and improving muscle contraction.

With the OSO Athletic mouth guard, you are free to focus on the match or game without any worries about discomfort caused by an ill-fitting mouth guard and you can also enjoy improved performance. This appliance doesn’t just reduce muscular tension, it also improves strength, balance and power.

Anyone who plays a sport that carries a risk of dental injury can benefit from the OSO Athletic mouth guard, regardless of whether you’re an amateur who likes to play once a week or an elite athlete who trains and competes on a daily basis.

We strongly recommend custom-fit mouth guards for all participants in hockey, ice hockey, lacrosse, wrestling, boxing, kick-boxing, martial arts, rugby union and rugby league.

Protection and performance: the OSO Athletic mouth guard

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

373639_blogSports injuries are one of the most common types of dental injury. At City Dental we advise all our patients who participate in contact sports to wear a protective mouth guard and we are proud to be one of the UK’s only dental practices to offer the hugely impressive and innovative OSO Athletic mouth guard. This is much more than your average mouth guard. Not only does it protect your teeth against injuries caused by contact and impact, it also ensures that your jaw joint is always in the best position, which enables you to focus on your performance on the field, rather than worrying about aches and pains. If your jaw is not in the best position, this can increase pressure on the facial muscles, which can restrict movement and cause pain and stiffness. With the OSO Athletic, you can rest assured that your jaw will be in the optimum position from the moment you place your custom-made mouth guard over your teeth. The OSO Athletic mouth guard does not just benefit your mouth; it facilitates better muscular movement throughout the body. We actively encourage amateur and professional athletes who take part in sports such as rugby, boxing, martial arts, hockey and lacrosse, to wear a mouth guard and we recommend the OSO Athletic for unrivalled levels of protection and enhanced performance.



Caring for Your Teeth in Sports in Leeds

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

On a daily basis in Leeds, we put ourselves a risk without even knowing it, yet when we choose to do something risky, like sports, we like to cover ourselves for the risks involved as much as we can. This involves wearing some form of protection to limit the risk of injury, and with contact sports, this should also extend to the wearing of a mouth-guard. The head and neck are very fragile areas of the body and by wearing some form of gum-shield, it can limit the damage to these places. Generally, there are three types of protection you can buy: over-the-shelf/ fit all types, ones which you place in warm water then mould them to your mouth and then bespoke ones that are tailored to you and your sport- these are probably the best because they lessen the forces going through your mouth. Most people would assume that a mouth-guard just protects the teeth and gums….not so. It is designed to protect your jaws too as with contact sports the jaws can take a bit of a battering. If this is protected, it stops further damage going up through the head and then down into the neck and upper back. You can ask your dentist for advice about mouth-guards and between the two of you, you should be able to come up with the best form of protection.
