Did Santa bring you a new pickleball paddle? Or new soccer gear for your kids? To start the year off right and keep your smiles safe, you’ll need sports mouthguards too. A blow to the face can break a tooth or even knock it out. But a custom-made mouthguard will ensure that doesn’t happen.
To schedule an appointment to be measured for a mouthguard in Sioux Falls, SD, call 605-250-4651 today. In the meantime, see some reasons you should get an athletic mouthguard from your dentist instead of a store:
- Superior Fit – We make impressions of your teeth that are used to create your mouthguard. This results in the kind of custom fit you just can’t get from a mass-produced guard. Since it will feel more comfortable in your mouth, you won’t be tempted to leave it out during your game. A mouthguard can’t protect you if you don’t wear it consistently.
- Better Protection – This better fit also means your custom mouthguard is less likely to get knocked out during play.
- Fits Correctly Without Adjustment – If you’ve worn a store-bought mouthguard before, you probably know that it typically requires you to submerge it in boiling water and then try to mold it to your mouth as best you can. Not surprisingly, this often doesn’t result in a good fit. Plus, it’s just frustrating. No boil-and-bite process is required with a custom guard.
- Longer Lasting – If a mouthguard doesn’t fit well, you’ll tend to “mouth” it to keep it in place. All of that mouthing means it will wear out more quickly than a custom-made athletic mouthguard.
