If you play contact sports such as basketball, hockey, football, judo, karate, martial arts, skateboarding, racquetball, soccer, squash, wrestling, volleyball and other similar sports, you may wish to talk with us about a mouthguard to protect your teeth. Mouthguards can protect more than just your teeth. In the event of a serious accident, a mouthguard helps distribute the force evenly throughout the skull, lessening the chance of concussions or other serious injuries. They also protect your tongue and cheeks from being cut by your teeth during impact.

Choosing the right mouthguard is important. There are three basic types of mouthguards: the pre-made mouthguard, the "boil-and-bite" fitted mouthguard (better), and a custom-made mouthguard (best). When you choose a mouthguard, be sure to pick one that is tear-resistant, well fitted and easy to keep clean. Also make sure it does not prevent your child from breathing properly during use. If your child wears braces or a retainer, it is very important for him to wear a mouthguard.

We make custom mouthguards for a nominal fee!
