Protect Your Teeth and Mouth with Custom-Fitted Mouthguards from Starbright Dental
Mouthguards are essential for protecting your teeth and mouth during physical activities. There are different styles of mouthguards available, but a custom-fitted mouthguard offers the best protection and comfort.
Types of Mouthguards
There are three types of mouthguards:
- Stock Mouthguards: These are pre-formed and come in standard sizes. They are the least expensive option but offer the least amount of protection and comfort.
- Boil-and-Bite Mouthguards: These are also pre-formed, but can be molded to fit your teeth by boiling them in water and then biting down on them. They offer better protection and comfort than stock mouthguards, but still may not fit as well as a custom-fitted mouthguard.
- Custom-Fitted Mouthguards: These are made to fit your teeth exactly and are created by taking an impression of your teeth. They offer the best protection and comfort, as they are tailored to your unique mouth structure.
Why Choose a Custom-Fitted Mouthguard?
While stock and boil-and-bite mouthguards are readily available at pharmacies and sports stores, they are not the best option for optimal protection and comfort. Here are a few reasons why a custom-fitted mouthguard is the better choice:
- Better Protection: A custom-fitted mouthguard is created to fit your teeth exactly, providing better protection for your teeth and mouth during physical activities. This is especially important for contact sports, where impacts to the mouth and jaw can cause serious injuries.
- Greater Comfort: Because a custom-fitted mouthguard is designed to fit your mouth exactly, it is more comfortable to wear than a stock or boil-and-bite mouthguard. It won’t slip or move around in your mouth, allowing you to breathe and speak more easily.
- Longer Lifespan: A custom-fitted mouthguard is made from high-quality materials that are designed to last. With proper care, a custom-fitted mouthguard can last for years, whereas stock and boil-and-bite mouthguards may need to be replaced more frequently.
