Custom Sports Mouthguards

Now that these adult teeth are moving in we sure do want to protect them. Custom Sports Mouthguards are the best choice. Sports-related head injuries occur twice as often as motor vehicle injuries. Studies show that properly fitted Custom Mouthguards reduce the incidence and severity of concussions, brain and neck injuries and jaw fractures. Dentist fitted Custom Mouthguards are recommended for all contact and collision sports since store bought mouthguards can displace up to 99% of the material needed to protect teeth and jaws. The International Academy for Sports Dentisty recommends that professionally made, properly fitted, Custom Mouthguards should be standard equipment for all contact and collision sports.
