When it comes to protecting your teeth during any contact sport or event, wearing a custom mouthguard is invaluable. Studies show that athletes are 60 times more likely to suffer harm to the teeth if they’re not wearing a mouthguard. We often get asked which kind of mouthguard is the right choice for your child. The best option is to have a custom formed mouthguard from a dental office. These appliances are made from an exact mold of your teeth and not only fit better on the teeth but are less bulky than most over the counter stock or boil & bite guards. Recent studies have even shown they can be effective in helping to minimize concussions.
