Did Santa bring you some new sports gear? If so, you’re probably excited about trying it out. However, it’s a good idea to get a custom mouthguard first. 

Lots of teeth get knocked out every year, about 5 million. A good number of those dental disasters happen during athletic activities. Teeth get broken and cracked too. To see the lasting impact a sports injury can have on your smile, check out this short video with Kelly Clarkson interviewing actor Joe Manganiello. He got that gap in his smile when he was a child!

An athletic mouthguard from a sporting goods store just doesn’t work as well as a custom-made guard. We use dental impressions to create a mouthguard that fits perfectly. No boil-or-bite process is needed, and it will feel so comfortable you won’t mind wearing it. 

In addition to sports mouthguards, we can provide custom mouthguards that will help you rest better at night. You can get a guard that stops you from grinding your teeth in your sleep, a habit that often results in dental damage and also causes headaches and jaw pain. If you show symptoms of sleep apnea, you can get a mouthguard that will keep your airway clear all night.
