Custom Fit Sport Mouth Guards

Any athlete who plays a sport involving any contact play or a high risk of sudden impacts, recreational or competitive, should wear a mouthguard. Properly diagnosed, designed, and custom fabricated mouthguards are truly essential in the prevention of athletic oral/facial injuries and concussions.

The American Dental Association (ADA) estimates that mouthguards prevent approximately 200,000 injuries each year in high school and collegiate football alone.

A properly fitted custom mouthguard should be protective, comfortable, resilient, tear resistant, odorless, tasteless, not bulky, cause minimal interference to speaking and breathing, and have excellent retention, fit, and sufficient thickness in critical areas. When it comes down to it, the store bought “boil and mold” are no where near sufficient quality mouthguard protection.

On another performance note, research by Under Armour has recently supported the finding that many athletes clench down on their teeth while performing, which stresses the jaw and decreases airflow. This fatigues the body quicker, and in turn contributes to lower performance. So, as long as your custom mouthguard fits well enough as to barely hinder your speech, the protective health benefits could even contribute to better performance.
