Sports Mouthguards An Overview
Mouthguards are an affordable and simple way to protect your family’s teeth and gums while playing sports. Custom fit mouthguards are an effective safeguard against sports related injuries for athletes of all ages.
In comparison to over the counter options, custom mouthguards offer superior comfort and protection. Some studies show that mouthguards can even help athletes perform better than when wearing a “bite-and-fit” mouthguard from the store.
Custom mouthguards fit better than over the counter options so they have less chance of dislodging during play. This allows athletes to focus on the game, not on their mouthguards. Custom mouthguards are also designed to allow patients to drink while wearing the device. Athletes are less likely to remove the device during practice, lessening the chance of misplacing the mouthguard.
