The Advantages of a Custom Athletic Mouthguard
A custom-designed athletic mouthguard is better than one you buy off the shelf from a sporting goods store or a drugstore. Here is why:
- More comfortable. Because we create your custom mouthguard using precise measurements from your mouth, the fit will be perfect! You won’t be tempted not to wear it because you can’t breathe or speak easily.
- More durable. Custom athletic mouthguards are made from more durable materials than those you purchase off the shelf. They’ll hold up better to wear-and-tear.
- Right for your activity. Not all sports require the same degree of padding. Some athletic mouthguards fit over just the upper jaw; others fit over both upper and lower jaws. We’ll make sure you get one that offers a level of protection appropriate for your activity.
How Your Athletic Mouthguards Are Made
How do we make your custom athletic mouthguards? Dr. James Kiehl or one of our other dentists takes impressions of your teeth and other measurements. We then send the information to a lab, where the mouthguard is fabricated. When your athletic mouthguard arrives, we check it to ensure a proper fit.
Are You A Candidate for An Athletic Mouthguard?
We recommend getting a custom-fit athletic mouthguard for family members who participate in sports or contact activity of any kind. Our mouthguards are designed to fit perfectly, so they protect teeth from harm. A good fit also ensures your mouthguard won’t get in the way while you play!
