RiverEdge Dental offers custom-made athletic mouthwear to protect your mouth during sporting activities. Our athletic mouthguards protect your teeth and gums from possible hits to the head during competition.
Our athletic mouthguards, or sports guards, are suitable for a broad range of sports, such as rugby, hockey, football, soccer, and weightlifting.
Mouthguards are worn over your teeth and help to protect them from getting damaged or broken. Mouthguards can come in various types which include:
Stock mouthguards - Stock mouthguards are the least expensive and come ready to wear. However, they are often bulky and less comfortable than the other types of mouthguards. This can make it harder to speak and breath properly while wearing them.
Boil and bite mouthguards - A step up from stock mouthguards are boil and bite mouthguards. They are given their name because the mouthguards have to be boiled in hot water and bitten down to create the proper fit. These can found in many sporting good stores and are usually more comfortable to wear.
Custom-made mouthguards - Out of the three types, custom-made mouthguards offer the best fit and protection. This is because they are custom-made in a dental lab according to your mouth’s unique specifications. Because these mouthguards offer a superior comfort and protection, they are extremely popular with athletes. However, they are more expensive than the other types of mouthguards.
Just like anything else, your mouthguard can become worn down over time. To ensure that your athletic mouthguard fits well, it’s best to replace it after each season. The dental team at RiverEdge Dental can create a high-quality, well-fitting mouth guard for your sports needs. Contact us to set up an appointment!
