Learn More About Our SE Calgary Sports Mouthguards

At Concept Dentistry, our goal is to ensure our patients have the right protection for their teeth. That is why a Custom Sports Mouthguards is an important piece of sporting equipment that is intended to protect your teeth while playing hands-on sports. Most people associate sports mouthguards with sports such as boxing, in fact; sports mouthguards were first used back in the 1920s.

Today, the Concept Dentistry Team recommends people use custom sports mouthguards for any activity that poses a risk to your dental health as an estimated 5 million teeth are lost each year by people playing sports. Athletes who were sports mouthguards are 60% less likely to experience teeth injuries according to the American Dental association.

These sporting activities include:

  • Hockey
  • Martial Arts
  • Football
  • Lacrosse
  • Basketball
  • Wrestling
  • Skateboarding
  • Mountain Biking
  • And More!

Why We Recommend Custom Sports Mouthguards

Custom Sports Mouthguards are specifically designed to protect your teeth and the soft tissues inside your mouth from injury. When we fabricate a custom Sports Mouthguard there is careful consideration in the design. A custom Sports Mouthguard is made from strong, tear-resistant material and is customized to fit your teeth properly. The material is light, which means it will not restrict your breathing and most importantly, custom Sports Mouthguards are comfortable. The fact is only a custom fit Sports Mouthguard will offer you the best protection.

What Are The Different Types of Sports Mouthguards?

There are several options for sports mouthguards, including:

One-Size Fit All Bulk Mouth Guards: These one-size fit all options are just as described. However, while relatively inexpensive, since everyone’s mouth is a different shape and size, these guards can be uncomfortable as well they don’t necessarily provide the greatest protection.

“Boil and Bite” Mouthguards: These mouthguards can be purchased online or at a local sporting goods store and are do it yourself in nature. They allow you to make your own mouth guard by placing the mouthguard in boiling water and then fitting it to your mouth. While this is a better option than one-size fits all, it still does not offer the same level of comfort or protection as a custom sports mouthguard.

Custom Sports Mouthguard: If you are serious about sports, this is the recommended option for all levels of sports players. They are custom made and shaped to your specific mouth shape. This allows for the most comfortable fit possible, yet still providing the highest level of protection. They may cost more than the other options, but not as much as you may think! This is one of those cases where you get what you pay for, and when you consider the level of injury prevention and comfort they provide, they are truly indispensable to the athlete!

Custom Sports Mouthguard Maintenance

Caring for your custom Sports Mouthguard is quite simple. You will receive a protective case to store your mouthguard when it’s not in use. After wearing your sports mouthguard, simply rinse it with water and place it back in the case. Once a week, gently clean it with your toothbrush and toothpaste.
