Custom Made Mouthguards in Delray Beach

Facial protection month may have been in April, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t schedule an appointment with Dr. George Dental for custom made mouthguards.

Keeping your family safe from an out of control baseball, a surfboard or tennis racquet could save you thousands. It could also save you a trip to the ER.

While custom made mouthguards from your Delray Beach dentist may cost you a bit more out of pocket, they will save you money and possibly more dental work in the future.

How Mouthguards Work

Your Delray Beach family dentist explains that mouthguards cushion blows to the head. If a hockey puck hits your son in the head and he is wearing a mouth protector, chances are he won’t sustain any damage whatsoever. The same can be said about your daughter’s balance beam classes.

While you may not think gymnastics is a dangerous sport, some would disagree. Even solo sports should consider custom made mouthguards whether it is for professional or amateur use.

Types of Mouth Protectors

While Dr. George recommends custom made mouthguards, he does stress that something is better than nothing.

Below are the three types of mouth protectors available:
  1. Stock
  2. Boil and Bite
  3. Custom Made

Stock Standard mouth protectors probably give the least protection when it comes to mouth guards, but are a much better bet than nothing at all. People who wear stock mouthguards often complain that they can’t breathe, much less talk.

Boil and Bite mouthguards are just what they say they are. You put them in boiling water before placing in your mouth and biting down. While these are a better buy when it comes to safety, they are still not as good as custom made mouth protectors.

Custom Made Mouthguards from your dentist in Delray Beach provide you with the best protection available. Made to fit you and only you, unlike stock mouthguards, these types of protectors fit snugly against your teeth and are extremely comfortable. Some athletes swear they forget they are wearing a custom made mouthguard.

Custom Made Mouthguards for All Sports

When it comes to protecting you and your family a custom made mouthguard for most sports is something to consider unless of course you are playing a friendly game of backgammon, which is technically considered a sport.

People who ride mountain bikes, those who enjoy water polo and anyone who surfs would be wise to schedule an appointment for custom made mouthguards.

A stray surfboard, especially with a leg rope, can swing around and hit you in the head. When it comes to any type of sports, a mouth protector is an excellent investment.

A Custom Made Mouthguard or the ER

Spring is here and that means you and your family will be spending more time outdoors and more time playing sports. Because it’s National Facial Protection Month, your Delray Beach Dentist Dr. George Sanchez wants to remind everyone how important a custom made mouth protector is, regardless of what sport you or your kids play.

Why are Mouthguards Important?

Mouthguards are important because they save you time and money. How is that possible you ask? Because a custom made mouth guard will cost you less than a trip to the emergency room.

Your dentist in Delray Beach explains that mouth guards prevent broken and chipped teeth and can prevent a knocked out tooth. A mouthguard also protects the face, tongue, and lips as it helps to redistribute a knock in the head. Although mouth guards will not prevent you or a family member from having a concussion, the injury will be less severe.

Are All Mouth Guards the Same?

In a word, no, all mouthguards are not the same. Although they are more expensive, custom-made mouthguards from your Delray Beach dentist are comfortable and much easier to wear.

There are three types of mouth guards. Standard, a one size fits all mouth protector, boil and bite, heated in water and molded to your teeth, and custom made mouthguards, custom made to fit by your dentist.

Of the three, custom made mouth guards give the best protection and are most likely to be worn. Unfortunately, standard and even boil and bite are so cumbersome it makes it hard to talk and even breathe. Because of those problems, most people who play sports, “Forget,” to wear their mouth protector.

Custom Made Mouthguards The Best Protection

Keep your family safe and schedule appointments for custom-made mouthguards. Remember, even skateboarders and surfers use mouth protectors. Call and schedule your dental appointments for a custom-made mouth protector from Dr. Sanchez today.
