Sports-associated accidents are responsible for approximately 5 million teeth being “knocked out” every year across the United States, which is why we encourage the use of a custom-sized mouthguard to protect your teeth.
The one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in stores don’t generally fit right. An ill-fitting mouthguard restricts your ability to breathe properly while running or performing other strenuous activities. On the other hand, a custom-made mouthguard fits and protects well, may improve your performance, and can be worn for any sport.
In fact, the American Dental Association recommends both children and adults wear a custom mouthguard for nearly all their sports activities.
