Some people like to think of a custom athletic mouthguard as a type of insurance policy for your smile. With this initial investment in a high-quality, custom-made mouthguard, you can prevent a dental emergency and possibly the need for expensive and complex dental work due to a preventable injury.
A custom mouthguard is more expensive than what you can find in the sporting goods store, but you are paying for comfort and protection. That cheap boil-and-bite mouthguard is not going to protect you as well as a guard that is crafted for your unique mouth. Plus, one-size-fits-all mouthguards tend to be bulky with a lot of excess plastic, which makes it difficult for you to breathe and communicate while wearing one.
If you are active, you should be wearing some form of mouthguard. Depending on your specific activity, we can craft the exact protection you need. For example, a football player needs a different form of protection than a mountain biker or a volleyball player.
Call our office today at 785-448-2487 to begin the process toward a safer mouth. Let us know that you’re interested in finding the best type of athletic mouthguard for your activities, and we’ll give you some options. We guarantee you’ll feel better knowing that your smile is protected while you’re on the court, field, or track!
