A Custom Mouthguards Is Best
You can purchase a “boil-and-bite” mouthguards from a drugstore. But it won’t protect your loved one’s mouth as well as a custom athletic mouthguards. Here’s why:
- One size does not fit all. An off-the-shelf mouthguard will never fit as well as one created specifically for your athlete. A mouthguard with a poor fit can make it tough for them to speak or even to breathe.
- Right mouthguard for the job. Not all sports require the same degree of padding. Some mouthguard fit over the upper jaw only, while others fit over both upper and lower jaws. Our League City, TX dentist Dr. Derek Tieken can advise you on which features will work best for your athlete.
- Made to last. Custom athletic mouthguards are made from more durable materials than off-the-shelf mouthguards.
Making an Athletic Mouthguards: How It Works
We’ll take impressions of your loved one’s mouth to ensure a perfect fit for their mouthguard. We use a high-tech digital scanner to make the impressions, not trays filled with messy molding material. Then we send impressions and other measurements to an outside lab that produces the mouthguard. At your fitting, we’ll make sure it is comfortable.
