The Academy for Sports Dentistry recommends that male and female athletes playing sports such as football, basketball, softball and soccer wear a mouthguard. Our Derry, NH, dentists can fabricate custom mouthguards with Under Armour mouthguard. The mouthguards are very fine quality and are very comfortable and essential to the athlete’s safety.
Custom mouthguards can reduce injuries to the mouth and jaws and are indicated during sporting activities, especially those that involve contact. Under Armour custom mouthguards have also been shown to reduce forces that can cause concussions. Usually a custom-made mouthguard is the most comfortable and the easiest to wear. Custom mouthguards should usually be replaced annually, especially for a growing child.
Why Are Custom Mouthguards the Best Option?
A custom mouthguard is formed specifically for your teeth, so it offers the best protection. Custom mouthguards are better than a mouthguard you buy at a store because they reduce the risk of injury, including: brain injuries or concussions, dislocation or fractures in your jaw, broken or lost teeth or stress to jaw or neck. Custom mouthguards fit better than a standard mouth guard, so they feel comfortable in your mouth—and we usually wear something that is comfortable; athletes can speak and breathe properly.
For our young patients at our office near Londonderry undergoing orthodontic treatment, you must wear an orthodontic mouthguard as opposed to a custom made mouthguard. We provide an orthodontic mouthguard as part of our patient’s orthodontic contracts. Please let us know if you require a new orthodontic mouthguard at any time during your orthodontic treatment.
If you have jaw pain or headaches upon waking, you may be clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth. Not only is this painful, but grinding your teeth can create problems later on, such as worn down teeth that could chip or crack. Nightguards, which are custom mouthguards worn at night, are useful in patients who grind or clench their teeth while sleeping at night.
