It may surprise you that 39 percent of dental injuries are sports related. That’s why you want to wear a mouthguard. It protects your mouth from damage and saves you from costly restorative dental care. However, you don’t want to buy store-bought ones like boil-and-bite guards. Those don’t provide quality protection. Instead, you’ll want a custom athletic mouthguard. You can expect these unique benefits:

  • Customized Fit

One of the biggest perks of a custom-made mouthguard from the dentist is that it’s made perfectly for you. We’ll take impressions of your teeth and then send out the information to an outside lab that creates your mouthguard. It will fit your mouth perfectly, making it more comfortable to wear while playing sports. 

  • More Durable

Because the mouthguard is made of high-quality materials, it won’t wear out as quickly. Many patients have enjoyed theirs for many years. If you bought a store-bought kind, it could maybe last you one season. That’s why it’s worth it to invest in a customized one. Plus, the maintenance is easy. You simply clean it regularly and store it in the case when not in use.

  • Better Protection

Your custom-fit mouthguard will stay in your mouth far easier, making it a better choice for protecting your smile while playing sports. Plus, it’s made of better materials, so it’s a more durable choice as well. We also make mouthguards according to the specific sport you play to ensure you have the best possible protection. 

  • Easier to Wear

One of the biggest complaints some people have about mouthguards is they aren’t comfortable to wear. Since we make your mouthguard fit you perfectly, it will be easier for you to keep it in your mouth. You will be able to talk and breathe without difficulty. 

  • Saves You Money

While the initial upfront costs of a mouthguard can be a bit expensive, just imagine the costs of repairing damaged or knocked-out teeth. You don’t want to wait for a dental emergency to happen to realize the benefits of an athletic mouthguard. Plus, you want one that gives you or your child the best possible protection. So, investing in a customized mouthguard you are more likely to wear is worth it.
