It's time to go back to school, which means Fall sports are in session! If your child is signing up for any contact sports, you should consider investing in a custom mouthguard at Villa Canyon Prosthodontics. While this type of mouthguard may cost a little more than the generic ones you purchase at the store, the benefits they provide are well worth the investment. During competitive play, the last thing you want to worry about is damaging your teeth. Having a custom mouthguard offers a level of protection that is unsurpassed in terms of both comfort and design.
Benefits of a Custom Mouthguard
Custom mouthguards offer many benefits, including
· Snug fit that conforms to the shape of your mouth for maximum comfort
· No slipping and sliding while it's in place
· Won't wear against your gums or cause irritation
· Designed to fit your jawline and bite pattern to keep your jaws in balance
A custom mouthguard will not cause your bite pattern to change or place stress on your TMJ joints. Each appliance is designed to fit your mouth perfectly with no gaps or imperfections.
Custom mouthguards are designed to offer maximum protection with a minimum of discomfort. Protecting your teeth doesn't have to be painful. Generic mouthguards can irritate your gums and cause blisters on the inside of your cheeks. A mouthguard eliminates those problems and ensures your bite pattern and jaw alignment remain the same.
If you need a custom mouthguard for fall sports, call Dr. Michael Bleeker at Villa Canyon Prosthodontics. He can answer your questions and create a custom mouthguard designed only or your use. He will go over how to properly use and maintain the mouthguard so you receive maximum protection at all times.
