Custom Sports Mouthguards
Dental injuries are among the most common facial injuries sustained through participating in contact sports. Custom-designed and fabricated athletic mouthguards play an important role in the prevention of sports-related oral and facial injuries.
What are Sports Mouthguards?
Sports mouthguards are dental devices designed to protect your teeth during contact sports. Our team of cosmetic dentists works with athletes in order to properly diagnose, design, and create custom sports mouthguards. Sports mouthguards custom-made, are designed to effectively protect the teeth from injury while minimizing interference with speaking, talking, and breathing.
Why are Sports Mouthguards important?
Sports mouthguards are perhaps the best and easiest way to protect your mouth from sports-related injury. While generic mouthguards can be purchased in athletic stores, they are often bulky and lack retention, limiting the level of protection they offer to your smile. Athletic stores also sell “boil and bite” mouthguards. While these offer slightly more personalized protection, they can be tricky to fit perfectly and fail to fully protect posterior teeth. Custom-made athletic mouthguards, are designed to effectively protect the teeth from injury while minimizing interference with speaking, talking, and breathing. They are professionally designed to offer the exact level of protection that you need. Since they are created for your individual mouth, they also offer a superior fit over store-bought mouthguards.
