Does your child partake in sports such as baseball, soccer, hockey or even football? Wondering if your child should be protecting their smile during activities such as skateboarding, rollerblading or even gymnastics? At Bernuy Orthodontics we are proud to offer custom mouthguards in Georgetown and Austin, TX for our patients interested in additional protection for their smile. Not sure if your child should be wearing a mouthguard? Feel free to call and ask, we recommend a mouthguard for most any activity that could result in a dental emergency and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Many patients ask us why they can’t just invest in a mouthguard you find over-the-counter and the answer is pretty simple, they just don’t work well. Our mouths are not one size, and our dental appliances shouldn’t be either. One-size-fits-all mouthguards provide the least protection and comfort for patients.
While boil and bite mouthguards are also over-the-counter, they are at least somewhat customizable. Boil and bite mouthguards require the patient to boil the mouthguard and then bite down into it to create an impression, “molding” the mouthguard to your smile. While these mouthguards are a better option than the one-size-fits-all alternatives, they can still be uncomfortable and offer minimal protection.
At Bernuy Orthodontics, we recommend custom-made sports mouthguards which have been tailored to your child. Custom mouthguards are designed per patient, ensuring that the fit, comfort, and protection is the best your child can receive. Custom mouthguards also make it easier for children to communicate while participating in their favorite activity, which can be highly important for many sports.
