Custom-made mouthguards are a great way to reduce the trauma to your teeth, surrounding tissues, or jaws from sporting collisions. Dental injuries account for between 25 and 50% of all sports injuries. A custom mouthguard is not required to prevent injuries from colliding with other people. These include subluxation, concussion, fractures, and avulsion. A simple mouthguard could save you a trip to your dentist, and even prevent costly dental crowns or implants.

Mouthguards that are custom-made fit your teeth and gums protect teeth during contact. They also allow you to breathe and speak clearly during sports games. Stock mouthguards (or "boil-and-bite" mouthguards) do not fit well to the teeth and mucosa. They can easily fall out of place, causing breathing problems and losing concentration. Some studies show that "boil-and-bite" mouthguards may cause more trauma than no mouthguard. They don't adapt well enough to the teeth to distribute the trauma.

To create the models for your custom-made mouthguard, you will need to take simple impressions of your upper & lower teeth. Alginate materials are used to take the impression, which takes approximately one to two seconds to set. These impressions can then be used to make plaster models. These models can then be used to create custom-made mouthguards using either pressure or vacuum forming machines. To ensure that the bite is properly considered, the mouthguards are trimmed to size.

There are many options for colors and patterns. You can even combine colors and patterns to make a mouthguard that matches your team's colors. Black and dark colors are not allowed in certain contact sports like boxing or martial arts. This is because it is more difficult to detect bleeding if there is contact than if there is a transparent or white mouthguard.

For all contact sports, and even training, it is important to have a custom-made mouthguard. Training is essential. Training is where most injuries occur. The patient can also get used to the mouthguard. The custom-made mouthguard is much more comfortable than standard mouthguards that are made from boil or shape materials. A custom-made mouthguard can be an essential part of your sporting kit. It helps to prevent or reduce injury to teeth and surrounding tissues.
