When playing sport, it’s extremely important to take care of your body; from warm-ups to protect your muscles to equipment such as pads to protect your shins or a helmet for your head. Similarly, if there’s any danger of contact to the face, it’s essential to protect your teeth with a sport mouthguard.
These items can be purchased at sports stores, but to give your teeth truly superior protection you should invest in a custom version from a dental prosthetist.
To create a custom sports mouthguard, our dental prosthetist takes an impression of your mouth with a putty-like material. We then use plaster to construct a model of your teeth. Once this has been produced, the mouthguard is vacuum-sealed around this model by a special machine. The resulting product will fit only your mouth, and will fit it perfectly.
A custom piece offers many benefits:
