Dental injuries are among the most common facial injuries sustained through participating in contact sports. Custom-designed and fabricated mouthguards play an important role in the prevention of sports-related oral and facial injuries.
What are Sports Mouthguards?
Sports mouthguards are dental devices designed to protect your teeth during contact sports. At Evercare Dental Group we will create custom made sports mouthguards designed to effectively protect the teeth from injury while minimizing interference with speaking, talking, and breathing.
The procedure is simple and fast; your dentist will take moulds of your teeth from which a guard is fabricated to perfectly fit your mouth, teeth and gums, providing ultimate protection.
Why are Sports Mouthguards important?
Sports mouthguards are perhaps the best and easiest way to protect your mouth from sports-related injury. While generic mouthguards can be purchased in athletic stores, they are often bulky and lack retention, limiting the level of protection they offer to your smile. Athletic stores also sell “boil and bite” mouthguards. While these offer slightly more personalized protection, they can be tricky to fit perfectly and fail to fully protect posterior teeth. Custom-made sports mouthguards offer the best, most individualized protection for your teeth. They are professionally designed to offer the exact level of protection that you need. Since they are created for your individual mouth, they also offer a superior fit over store-bought mouthguards.
