Sports Mouthguards

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON

Dental injuries are among the most common sports injuries. Studies have shown that athletes not wearing mouthguards are 60 times more likely to suffer mouth injuries. Mouthguards are required in high school and college football preventing an estimated 200,000 injuries each year, according to the American Dental Association.

Mouthguards reduce the risk of mouth, face and jaw injuries, as well as broken teeth. The basic types of mouthguards include:

Stock
Sold in stores, these preformed guards may not fit well, reducing the effectiveness.

Boil and bite
Also sold in stores, these fit a little better by boiling and then inserting in the mouth to form.

Custom-fitted
Mouthguards that are custom-made are the most expensive but offer the best protection.
