A Custom-Fit Mouthguard Can Improve Your Game And Protect Your Smile

(Last Updated On: March 26, 2021)


Do you always wear a mouthguard?    If not, consider these interesting facts:

  1. Up to 40% of dental injuries are sustained during sports activities.
  2. The cost of a custom mouthguard is a small fraction of the cost of dealing with dental trauma.
  3. NOT wearing your mouthguard makes you 60 times more likely to sustain an injury to the face and mouth.

When A Mouthguard Is Super Comfortable, It’s More Likely To Be Worn

We know that a lot of people avoid wearing mouthguards because they’re uncomfortable. They get in the way of speech, and sometimes hamper breathing. They can also put stress on one’s jaw if it doesn’t fit right.

Custom Mouthguards Are Different

  • Custom-fit mouthguards are more comfortable than stock mouthguards—even the boil-and-bite ones.
  • They’re less bulky, which makes talking, breathing, and swallowing easier.
  • Because of the quality of the materials used, they last longer.
  • You’ll enjoy added protection against cut lips, a cut tongue, and concussions.
