Protecting your smile while playing sports is essential. Injuries to the mouth and jaw are some of the most common injuries received by athletes. Mouthguards help protect your teeth and gums.

Types of Mouthguards

Choosing the right mouthguard is important. There are three basic types of mouthguards: the pre-made mouthguard, the "boil-and-bite" fitted mouthguard, and a custom-made mouthguard. When you choose a mouthguard, be sure to pick one that is tear-resistant, well fitted for your mouth and easy to keep clean. Also make sure it does not prevent you from breathing properly during use. 

We can create a special mouthguard for your child that will provide comfort and a proper fit. A custom made mouthguard may be more costly than a store bought stock mouthguard, but their exceptional fit, comfort, and overall quality make them worth it. A custom made guard stays in the mouth and does not interfere with speech or breathing. They come in a variety of team colors and can be customized with your name and number.

Our goal is to help minimize your chances of a sports related injury. Be sure to ask your dentist about mouthguards at your next dental checkup - GO TEAM!
