Do I Need To Use A Mouthguard When Playing Sports?

Why do you think you see all the top stars in the NFL, NHL, MLB, MLS, and NBA all wearing cool looking mouthguards these days?

We will tell you why, as long gone are the days in the 70s and 80s’ sports stars that have infamous photos of themselves with no front teeth. Today’s world now realizes the importance of having a beautiful smile, as it can help benefit you in many social aspects of the world, whether it is professionally or personally.

Mouthguards are not just for children playing sports or the multimillion dollar professional sports athletes. If you are in an adult recreational sports league, you may want to consider a custom made mouthguard as well. No matter your age, your teeth are an investment; whether you have invested time in caring for them or money in creating the smile of your dreams, you want to keep it that way, and not have any limits to which sports you can or can not play.

Advantages Of A Custom Mouthguard

  • Coolness
    • Several top stars wear custom mouthguards to help keep their smile protected. Be cool like your favorite athlete and tear up the playing field just like they do!
  • Comfort
    • Of course, you can go to the store and pick up a generic mouth guard that will claim to do the same thing as a custom mouthguard. However, each patient has a different mouth and different teeth, so chances are that the generic mouthguard will not fit comfortably or securely. The generic mouthguard is likely to irritate your gums, and may also shift during play, and that would be a counterproductive mouthguard.
