about sports mouthguards
Why choose a custom made athletic mouthguard?
It Fits Well
A custom made athletic mouthguard is created specifically for the individual from a model of his/her teeth. It will fit well and cover all of the teeth adequately. A custom made mouthguard is more comfortable than a "boil-and-bite" guard. It won’t fall out as easily, and it is easier to breathe and talk with it in.
The thickness can be customized to the sport that the athlete is playing. For example, a boxer will need more thickness in the front to protect the teeth, gums, and bone. A football, hockey, or lacrosse player will wear a facemask, so the mouthguard will not need to be as thick in the front, but it will need to be thicker on the back teeth to protect during collisions that occur while playing the sport. The material we use helps absorb the force of impact.
It Looks Cool
At Penz Dental Care, we can customize your mouthguard with logos, numbers, your name, etc. It becomes a cool accessory that also provides superior protection for your teeth.
It Prevents Dental Injuries
An athlete is 60 times more likely to suffer harm to the teeth when not wearing a mouthguard (American Dental Association). Given the potential for costly dental treatments caused by sports injury, it is important to work with your dentist to have a mouthguard that fits well and looks great.
At Penz Dental Care, we have a top-of-the-line machine that we use to make our sports mouthguards. Your athlete's mouthguard will fit well and, with proper home care, will last for 2-3 years or longer.
