If you play a contact sport or participate in an activity for which there is the potential for trauma, we recommend wearing a sports mouthguard for that activity. Mouthguards should be worn at all times during competition, practice, and games.
Custom-Made Pressure Laminated Mouthguards designed, fabricated and fitted by a dentist have been substantiated in the dental literature to be more protective than Over-The-Counter Stock or Boil/Bite Mouthguards in the prevention of sports Oro-Facial injuries. Since 80-90% of Oro-facial sports injuries occur to the upper front four teeth, that is where we have a primary focus in the construction of our dental sports mouthguards. Custom pressure laminated dental mouthguards are the only custom sports mouth guards to obtain the recommended 3mm of thickness outside the upper front teeth.
A custom fit pressure laminated mouthguard provides a more retentive fit, it stays in place and does not dislodge upon impact thereby providing more protection. Its protective fit is constructed for oro-facial protection with the latest concussion prevention theory built into the geometry of the design. A custom fit mouthguard provides balanced occlusion for more uniform energy absorption upon impact, and the proper uniformed thickness of the sports mouthguard may be able to reduce the forces transmitted to your teeth and jaw. The ability to individually custom-fit your mouthguard increases wear comfortability. Its comfortable, custom fit aids in better breathing and better communication while performing. Custom-fit mouthguards assist in performance enhancement allowing you to be a stronger player by increasing stamina, endurance, and balance.
