Custom Mouthguards for Sports

Participating in sports can be exhilarating. However, it also comes with its fair share of risks, including dental injuries. Custom mouthguards are indispensable tools for athletes of all levels, from amateurs to professionals.

  • Maximized Protection: Dr. Williamson tailors your custom mouthguard to fit your teeth precisely. A custom mouthguard offers superior protection compared to generic, on-size-fits-all options. They effectively absorb and distribute impact forces. As a result, it reduces the risk of dental injuries.
  • Comfort and Stability: The customized fit ensures comfort and stability during athletic activities, allowing you to breathe and speak more naturally. Unlike ill-fitting generic mouthguards, custom ones won’t interfere with your performance.
  • Durability: Custom mouthguards are built to last. You should be able to endure rigorous sports sessions without wearing one out. This durability translates to long-term value, as you won’t need to replace them frequently.
  • Reduced Concussion Risk: Some studies suggest that properly fitted mouthguards may reduce the risk of concussions by absorbing and dispersing impact forces.

Mouthguards for Braces

For patients with braces, it is vital to protect the investment you made in your mouth. If you have braces, Dr. Williamson can design your mouthguard to fit around your orthodontic treatment.

  • Customized Fit: Your dentist can craft your mouthguard to accommodate your braces. This helps to ensure a snug fit that doesn’t interfere with your treatment. A custom mouthguard will protect both the braces and your teeth.
  • Prevent Injuries: Braces can add complexity to oral injuries if you get hit in the mouth. Custom mouthguards provide an extra layer of protection against cuts, bruises, and damage to your lips and cheeks.
  • Treatment Progress: Wearing a mouthguard designed for braces makes sure that your orthodontic treatment will progress smoothly. You won’t have to worry about setbacks due to unexpected dental injuries.
