The use of a properly fitted mouthguard is the best available protective device for reducing the incidence and severity of sports related oral injuries. Custom mouthguards, made by your dentist, provide a resilient and protective surface that can distribute the force and help minimize the severity of injury to the teeth and surrounding soft tissues.
Unlike over-the-counter mouthguards, custom mouthguards provide:
- The proper thickness
- Almost no interefence with speech or breathing
- A snug fit, protecting your teeth, gums and supporting bone
- Protection to the back teeth
- The most comfortable option
