If you are in a contact sport, you could benefit from a sports mouthguard. You do not want to leave your mouth exposed to the ball or other players. It only takes one incident in practice to have a permanent injury to your teeth or jaw.
Most sports stores have a one size fits all mouthguard for sale. You can buy about any color possible, pop it in your mouth and be on the field in minutes. While these mouthguards will protect your mouth from a blow to the face, how long will you want to wear them?
Custom Mouthguards For Sports
If you come to our office for a custom mouthguard, you can expect that it will be comfortable with far less irritation to your gums as opposed to a mouthguard from a sports store. In addition, it will stay in place. It is important that all of your teeth have adequate cushion. If your mouthguard fits well, you may also talk while you wear it, which is important when you need to communicate plays on the field.
Mouthguards and Your Mouth at Night
The other type of mouth guard is called a night guard. A night guard prevents any force from causing damage to the teeth. If you grind your teeth excessively in your sleep, a night guard can prevent you from wearing down your teeth. It will protect your enamel. A custom night guard can make all the difference if you want to sleep well and protect your teeth.
