Mouth guards can be found in pharmacies and most athletic goods stores, but these options provide limited protection and will not fit your mouth properly. A common mouth guard is the “boil and bite” version that fits to your teeth after you boil it in water. While this may seem to be a good choice, these mouth guards still do not provide the best protection. Your best solution is to purchase a custom mouth guard from your dentist. It is designed based on a model of your actual teeth so it will fit perfectly and provides more protection than any other mouth guard!
The small investment into a mouth guard from your dentist is worth saving you the risk, anxiety, potential pain, and maybe even years of dental treatments. Dr. Payam specializes in sports dentistry and can provide you with a perfect fit so you don’t have to worry about your teeth and can focus on the sports you love!
