Protecting Your Teeth with a Mouthguard


Mouthguards can get a bad rap.  Many people refuse to wear mouthguards while playing sports because they think that they are dorky or they think that they will get in the way while they are breathing hard. If you are playing a contact sport, it is important that you have a mouthgaurd that you know you will be able to trust.  Not only can your mouthgaurd save you from some serious pain, it can also save you a ton of money.  Getting your teeth fixed after a serious accident can be expensive, time consuming and painful.


So, after you know that you need a mouthguard, it is then important that you choose the right type of mouthguard.  There are three different types of mouthguards, they are…


  1. Custom-fitted mouthguards. We make these mouthguards for you so they fit your mouth like a glove. We will take impressions and ensure that your mouthguard is going to protect all of your teeth.
  2. Stock sizes. These are the mouthguards you can buy at sports stores that are already a specific size. These may not fit your mouth just right, but they will be better than nothing when you are playing.
  3. Boil and bite mouthguards. These are the mouthguards that you put into boiling water to soften them up and then bite down on them. Once you bite down on them, the impression of your teeth will be made in the mouthguard.


Before you head out to the court, the field or even to practice, make sure that your pearly whites are protected.  Find the mouthguard that works the best for you or consult with us to day to make sure that you have a mouthguard that is going to do a great job protecting you.
