Custom sports mouthguards are protective devices that are worn over the teeth to protect them from injury during sports and other physical activities. They are made to fit the specific shape and size of an individual's teeth, and are often more comfortable and effective than store-bought mouthguards. The benefit of custom mouthguards is they can be personalized with artwork and customized to the unique individual. Each sport and each athlete requires a different mouthguard depending on the type of contact sport, misalignment of teeth and type of orthodontic treatment.
Custom sports mouthguards are typically made by a dental professional using a digital scan of your teeth. The scan is used to create a mold, which is then used to make the mouthguard. The mouthguard is usually made of several layers of a soft, pliable material that is designed to absorb shock and protect the teeth from injury.
Custom sports mouthguards are recommended for a variety of sports and activities, including football, basketball, hockey, boxing, and martial arts. They are especially important for athletes who are at higher risk of dental injuries, such as those who play contact sports or participate in activities that involve high speed or impact.
