If you play a sport, chances are you could benefit from a custom sports mouthguard. The American Dental Association recommends wearing one even for sports that don’t require physical contact. Even with no physical contact, you can injure your mouth and damage your teeth if you get hit with a ball or fall on a hard surface.
If you’ve got an athlete in the family, or you’re an athlete yourself, we recommend asking Oklahoma City, OK dentist Dr. Kevin Layton about a custom sports mouthguard. He’ll take impressions of your teeth so your mouthguard will fit perfectly. Because a custom-made model fits better and is more comfortable than an off-the-shelf mouthguard, you’ll be more likely to wear it every time you play.
