Get Ready for the New Sport Season With a Custom Mouthguard

boys playing rugbyWith the new sport season on the horizon, it’s crucial to ensure your young athlete is protected from dental injuries. Mouthguards are an important protective gear for athletes, especially those involved in contact sports like football, rugby, hockey, and lacrosse. They are designed to protect the teeth from damage due to impact from another player or object.

A Snug, Protective Fit

While many people purchase a “boil and bite” mouthguard, those don’t fit securely. A custom-fitted mouthguard provides the best protection, because it fits snugly around the teeth and gums and offers maximum coverage for your mouth. It also allows you to breathe more easily than an off-the-shelf model.

What Are Some Benefits?

In addition to preventing injury from impacts during physical contact sports, a custom-fitted mouthguard may also help reduce the risk of concussion.

Wearing a custom mouthguard can also help protect against TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) disorder, which affects the jaw joint and surrounding muscles that control chewing movements. A properly fitted mouthguard prevents unconscious clenching or grinding while playing sports, and reduces stress on the joint itself, which can lead to painful symptoms such as headaches and jaw pain.
