Why it’s Important to Wear a Mouthguard

Do you or a loved one enjoy athletic activities or playing sports? Want to make sure your smile is as protected as possible even while participating in sports? At Bernuy Orthodontics we are proud to offer custom mouthguards in South Austin and Georgetown for our patients that participate in athletic/sports activities and are interested in making sure their smile is as protected as possible. Not sure if a sports mouthguard is right for you? We often recommend them for patients that:

  • Play sports such as basketball, hockey, baseball, softball, lacrosse, and even wrestling.
  • Partake in athletic activities such as gymnastics, skiing, skateboarding and even rollerblading.

Still not sure? We’d be more than happy to provide you with a consultation to determine if a sports mouthguard is the right option for protecting your smile.

About Our Sports Mouthguards

Although our patients can buy a mouthguard from most any store, we recommend avoiding store-bought mouthguards. Over-the-counter mouthguards are often marketed as “one-size-fits-all”, however, in our experience, they should be considered “one-size-fits-none”. These mouthguards are designed to fit in any mouth but more often than not they are ill-fitting, uncomfortable and a waste of money. With a custom mouthguard from Bernuy Orthodontics, we use impressions to custom-tailor your sports guard, ensuring that you receive maximum protection while also experiencing maximum comfort. To get your custom mouthguard, feel free to schedule an appointment today!

Benefits of Custom Mouthguards

When it comes to protecting smiles, our professional, custom mouthguards have various benefits, which include:

  • Custom mouthguards are designed specifically for each patient, ensuring comfort and protection.
  • Sports mouthguards can protect your smile, gums, tongue and even lips from damage.
  • Custom mouthguards allow you to properly speak and communicate with your team during practice and games.
