Teeth cannot grow back! So protect your family’s smiles with a custom-fit sports mouthguard.
Mouthguards are an easy way to protect your whole family’s teeth while participating in sports and contact activities. Custom-fit mouthguards are a general dental option appropriate for athletes of all ages and can be made to fit over braces.
Custom mouthguards offer improved protection and increased comfort in comparison to over-the-counter options. In addition, these mouthguards help athletes focus on their performance. Studies suggest that some athletes may perform better than when wearing a “bite-and-fit” over-the-counter mouthguard.
Custom mouthguards tend to have a higher compliance rate than over-the-counter options, especially in younger athletes. The improved comfort and ease of use encourage children to keep their mouthguards in place during practice and play. In addition, custom mouthguards allow patients to drink while wearing the device for a lower risk of misplacing the mouthguard.
Sports-related injuries are one of the leading causes of tooth loss.
Custom-fit mouthguards are an affordable way to protect the teeth, jaw, and gums from damage during sports. Cheaper than dental implants to replace missing teeth, mouthguards are a smart investment in your athlete’s oral health. Protect your family’s smiles during athletic activity!
