Custom Made Mouthguards in Milton ON area

When your child is playing a sport, you’ll often go out and purchase them helmets, shin guards, knee pads, and other protective gear. But, did you know that nearly half of all sports injuries involve the mouth? Custom made mouthguards from Scott and Derry Dental Care in Milton, ON can protect your child’s smile from the risks of sports-related injuries.

Who needs custom made athletic mouth guards

Custom made mouthguards are not just reserved for professional athletes. Neither are they used solely for preventing broken or knocked-out teeth. These mouthguards should be used by any level of athlete that is involved in high impact sports. In addition to preventing injury to the teeth, they can also help reduce the risk of concussions. This is because during trauma to the head, the tension in the jaw can travel up through the skull. With a mouthguard, the head is better protected against these types of injuries.

About custom made mouthguards

Mouthguards are a protective covering for the teeth that are completely customized to fit your child’s mouth. While you can often find mouthguards at your local sporting goods store, these are one-size-fits-all and not nearly as effective as custom mouthguards that are made to fit your child’s mouth. Sporting goods mouthguards require that your child’s mouth be clenched in tension for them to properly protect the mouth. This can lead to jaw pain and chronic headaches. Custom made mouthguards are designed uniquely for your child’s teeth and can be fabricated to fit over braces if needed.

Benefits of custom-made mouthguards:

  • Designed to stay in place if there is an injury
  • Easier to breathe and speak with
  • Fit snugly for improved comfort and protection
  • Can be designed to protect the lips, tongue, and jaw
  • Reduce tension in the jaw muscles
