Custom Mouth Guards for the Family
It’s National Facial Awareness Month and every year Dr. Paul Shinto and his associates help spread the word about protection when it comes to playing sports.
A custom made mouth guard is the best defense when it comes to mouth injuries. Furthermore, it could save your tooth.
Family Benefits with Mouth Guards
Every member of your family benefits when it comes to a mouth guard for sports. From toddlers to tween, teens, young adults, adults and seniors no one should jump on the court or playing field without some sort of protection
Think of it this way, you protect your head with a helmet so it just makes sense that you would protect your mouth from a blow to the head.
If a racquet comes into contact with your mouth guard you have a much better chance of surviving the hit. Depending on the rest of your facial and head protection you could walk away unscathed.
Types of Mouth Guards
There are three types of mouth protection available. standard, boil and bite and custom made.
All three of these mouth protectors will provide you and your family against a blow to the head. However these types of mouth guards are not made the same.
Standard mouth guards are made from thick plastic and while they are a one size fits all mouth protector, not everyone’s mouth is the same size.
For some these types of mouth protectors are bulky, heavy and extremely uncomfortable. In fact, some players won’t even wear them because they are unable to breathe.
Boil and Bite
Boil and bite mouth protectors are exactly what they say they are. You put them in hot water and bite down making them custom for your mouth.
While these will provide protection and are better than nothing they are not a custom made solution. Sadly just like standard mouth guards, boil and bite mouth protectors usually get left behind.
When it comes to mouth protection you won’t do better than custom made. Your Pasadena dentist will take impressions so that your custom made mouth guard fits perfectly.
You won’t have to worry about slippage or comfort when you order a custom made mouth guard.
