A perfect fit means your custom mouthguard will:

  • Be comfortable to wear, so you won’t be tempted to play without it
  • Stay in your mouth to better protect you
  • Withstand wear-and-tear better than a store-bought mouthguard

Stay Safe While You Play With a Custom Mouthguard

An athletic mouthguard is extremely important for preventing dental injuries, especially for children or young adults who are active in recreational or competitive sports. Aside from creating a barrier to keep teeth in place during a severe blow to the face, a mouthguard also acts as a shock absorber to minimize the blow’s overall impact to the rest of the head.

Sports mouthguards are a wise protective measure for any physical activity, including:

  • Boxing
  • Football
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Soccer
  • Hockey
  • Biking
  • Skateboarding
  • Riding a scooter
  • Skating
  • Gymnastics

Take Good Care of Your Athletic Mouthguard

Keeping your athletic mouthguard clean and free of bacteria is important. Thankfully, caring for your mouthguard (and your mouth) is just a matter of making the following behaviors a habit:

  • Brush and rinse your teeth before and after wearing your mouthguard
  • Store your mouthguard in a clean, dry container with air vents
  • Clean your mouthguard and container regularly
  • Do not chew on your athletic mouthguard, as this could cause holes where bacteria can collect

Panama City Smiles also has custom-made mouthguards for bruxism (grinding of the teeth).

To schedule an appointment for you or your child to be fitted for athletic mouthguards or bruxism guards, call 850-588-0185. Our Panama City, FL dentist office is located near Jinks Middle School and the Al Helms Dog Park.
