Sports related injuries are a leading cause of tooth loss; teeth do not grow back, protect them with a custom mouth guard.
For children and adults who play sports, especially contact sports, custom fit mouth guards can help to minimize the risk of tooth loss or other oral injuries. Not only are dental injuries painful and cause massive bleeding, but they are also every expensive to treat. The player’s teeth may fall out or the teeth can cause huge lacerations inside the mouth and many other injuries.
Any athlete of any age can benefit from using a custom fit mouth guard. Custom mouthguards designed by a dentist offer superior protection and comfort compared to over-the-counter options.
Many athletes report that they feel they perform better while wearing a custom designed mouthguard. They are more comfortable and secure than the store bought versions. Athletes are able to focus more on the game and not on clenching their jaw to keep their mouthguard in place. They also allow athletes to drink and speak with the mouthguard in place reducing the chance of misplacement.
Over-the-counter mouthguard options are frequently ill fitting and can slip or fall out while on the field. Even though the boil and bite mouthguards seem like they are custom made, they still do not offer the amount of protection needed. This type lacks the necessary amount of thickness that cushions and protects the teeth during play. They can be easily chewed up by the athlete and will shred little pieces of plastic. Over the counter mouthguards also require your mouth to be closed for maximum protection. This can make it difficult to breath and if you need to speak or yell, the mouthguard will likely fall out. This can also cause tension in the jaw, face or neck.
