What are Custom Mouthguards?

A custom mouthguard, otherwise known as a sports mouthguard, is a protective device for your teeth. It is designed to prevent dental injuries such as fractured or knocked-out teeth. A custom made mouthguard is created precisely to the specifications of digital images of the patient’s teeth, providing a more comfortable fit and better protection than a store-bought mouthguard.

Benefits of Custom Mouthguards

Custom mouthguards offer many benefits:

Protection. A mouthguard protects your child’s teeth from damage during sports and other physical activities.
Better fit. A custom mouthguard fits more precisely than a store-bought mouthguard, even the ones that claim to be customizable.
Comfort. A custom mouthguard is more comfortable than a store-bought mouthguard because it fits more snugly to the teeth and is more compact.
Protection for braces. If you have braces on your teeth you are at a higher risk of injury to the soft tissues of your mouth. A custom mouthguard can be made to fit over your braces for increased protection.

Who Needs a Custom Mouthguard?

Custom mouthguards can be worn by children and adults who participate in:

  • High contact sports

Frequently Asked Questions About Custom Mouthguards

When are mouthguards necessary?

Not all sports require a mouthguard, but we recommend wearing one for most physical activities from high-contact sports like football to low-contact sports like soccer. Even in a low contact sport, there is a chance of a mouth injury.

What is the process for getting a mouthguard?

Digital impressions are taken of the teeth, which is a quick process. These images are used to create your custom mouthguard for a precise fit.

Are custom mouthguards covered by insurance?

Some dental insurance plans cover a portion of the cost of custom mouthguards for sports. Contact your provider or refer to your benefits guide for specific information about your plan.

Do mouthguards come in different colors and designs?

Custom mouthguards can be made with your choice of color and with additional design features such as words or logos.

Will my child outgrow their mouthguard?

Depending on the age when the mouthguard is first created, a child may eventually outgrow their mouthguard and need to have a new one made. This may also be necessary after the teeth are shifted during orthodontic treatment.
