    Proven Track Record
    Speaking of developing long-term relationships with our patients, University Associates in Dentistry has been a trusted provider in the community for more than three decades. In Chicago, EON Clinics and ClearChoice have a couple years of service each. But length of time serving the community isn’t the only thing that matters. University Associates in Dentistry has been privileged to serve as the team dentist for the Chicago Blackhawks since 2004. We’re also a top destination for other dentists who are interested in continuing education initiatives. Our implant seminars are sought-after opportunities. Neither ClearChoice nor EON Clinics offer these opportunities to their colleagues.

  • Tips for Avoiding Dental Sports Injuries

    sports dentistry Chicago

    Injuries sustained during sport are some of the most common dental injuries. Damage to the front teeth, cheek, or gums is especially common among athletes. If you play sports regularly, it’s especially important to take steps to prevent damage to your teeth. Regular dental check-up and the use of protective mouth guards can help safeguard the beauty of your smile .

    Dental Check-Ups
    Both professional and amateur athletes should visit their dentist regularly. The dentist will be able to identify any teeth which are particularly vulnerable to injury. It is important to keep teeth strong and healthy as decaying or loose teeth are more liable to damage. Orthodontic work, replacement teeth, crowns, and bridges also need to be examined regularly to check that they are securely attached and not liable to break.

    Mouth Guards
    Well designed, custom-made mouth guards can protect your teeth from injury in the event of a fall, collision, or other physical trauma. Your dentist will tailor the mouth guard to fit your individual teeth and jaw. Ask your dentist to check your mouth guard regularly to make sure it is in good condition, as a crushed or damaged mouth guard will not offer full protection. In addition, some sports require use of a helmet, partly to prevent jaw injuries, which could damage teeth.

    In the event of an injury, you should visit your dentist as quickly as possible. Even if a tooth has been knocked out completely, the dentist may be able to reattach it. The dentist may also be able to repair more minor damage, such as chips and scratches. To keep teeth in the best possible condition, athletes should always exercise good dental hygiene. For best results, brush and floss at least twice daily and use a fluoride mouthwash.
