In many families, Santa brings the athletes some new sports gear. So it’s a good time of year to remind you of the importance of wearing a custom mouthguard. 

You’ve heard us say it before. But we think this video with Kelly Clarkson and actor Joe Manganiello illustrates it better than we ever could. As an adult, he is still living with the results of a youthful sports injury. 

If anyone in your bunch is getting sports equipment under the tree this year, go ahead and schedule an appointment with us for a custom-made mouthguard. Unlike store-bought mouthguards, ours are made using impressions of your family member’s teeth. This ensures a perfect fit, with no irritating boil-and-bite process needed. It will feel more comfortable and stay in their mouth better, so they won’t be tempted to leave it on the sidelines when they play. 

In addition to sports mouthguards, our dentists can fit you for a custom-made appliance that will prevent you from grinding your teeth during the night. Grinding can do a lot of damage to tooth enamel in addition to causing headaches, jaw pain, and other unpleasant conditions.
