If you are someone who plays sports or engages in physical activities that pose a risk of injury to your mouth, it is important to invest in a custom mouthguard. Not only can a mouthguard protect your teeth, gums, and jaw from injury, but it can also help prevent more serious and costly dental problems down the line. In fact, the Australian Dental Association (ADA) strongly recommends that athletes of all ages use custom mouthguards.
One of the key advantages of a custom mouthguard is that it is specifically designed to fit your mouth. Over-the-counter mouthguards may seem like a more convenient and affordable option, but they often do not fit properly and may not provide adequate protection. A custom mouthguard is made from a mould of your teeth, ensuring a snug and comfortable fit that won’t slip or cause discomfort during activities. This customized fit also allows for easier breathing and speaking, making it more likely that you will actually wear your mouthguard during games and practices.
Another benefit of a custom mouthguard is that it can protect against a variety of dental injuries. These injuries can range from chipped or broken teeth to more serious injuries like jaw fractures and concussions. Custom mouthguards can also help prevent damage to the soft tissues of the mouth, such as the tongue and cheeks, which can be lacerated or bruised during impact. By protecting your mouth from these types of injuries, you can avoid the need for costly dental treatments and potentially even more serious medical interventions.
