Properly Fitted For Protection and Performance
Many sports require athletes to wear mouth guards to protect teeth from damage in case players collide or are hit in the mouth by sports equipment. Many retail stores offer simple mouthguards that can be boiled to soften and shape to the player’s mouth. But there are limitation to how well these fit.
Dr. Dan Thompson offers custom-fitted mouthguards for athletes of all ages. These guards are created by making a detailed impression of the patient’s mouth and teeth. Then the guard is custom manufactured for a perfect fit.
There are several advantages to this. First, the custom-fitted guard can provide better protection. It’s also more comfortable. And it may even help the athlete improve his or her performance, because an ill-fitting guard may impede breathing or be distracting.
Custom-fitted guards are affordable and can be made quickly. To schedule an appointment for a guard fitting, click here.
