Dr. Matheson highly recommends using custom fit athletic mouth guards for all contact sports. In a classic case of ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’, custom made mouth guards protect the teeth, jaw and soft tissue of the mouth from injury and and the potentially time-consuming dental treatments needed to treat them. In addition, the mouth guards can reduce the incidence of concussions while playing sports. Studies have shown that generic stock or “Boil and Bite” mouth guards found at sports stores do not provide the level of protection that can be achieved by wearing custom-fit athletic mouth guards.

Your athletic mouth guard can also be customized with your name, number, and team logo.
