Do I Need a Mouth Guard When I Play Sports?
Some sports don’t necessarily require mouth guards. But we recommend mouth protectors to preserve your unique smile if you are involved with:
- Mountain biking.
If there is a risk of an impact to your teeth, it is better to be safe wearing a football mouth guard or other custom mouth guard than to endure broken or lost teeth and the dental procedures necessary to restore them.
Also, if you have braces or a bridge on your teeth, a sports mouth guard ensures that these valuable appliances are not broken.
Custom Mouth Guards vs. Over-the-Counter Moldable Mouth Guards
There are two options when you are choosing a football mouth guard or other sports mouth guard:
- Store-Bought Kits | You can buy a mouth guard kit at a sports store that you mold at home. These offer no guarantee of a correct or comfortable fit. They may leave gaps between the guard and your teeth, leaving room for injuries.
- Custom Mouth Guard | At Smileology, your professional mouth guard dentist will take impressions of your teeth and design and produce a custom mouthguard that conforms to your unique smile. This offers maximum protection, along with a more comfortable fit.
We have refined our process for working with athletes over the years, which has led to Smileology being an official college sports dentist. We recommend a customized mouth guard to any athlete who visits. Spend a little more now to avoid injuries and costly procedures later.
