Gear Up For Summer Sports With An Athletic Mouthguard! [BLOG]

We’re only a few short weeks into the spring season, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start thinking about summer sports.

Training and practices begin long before that first whistle blows, which is why you’ll want to visit Northwest Dental Group now for a custom athletic mouthguard from Dr. Post.

We design each one especially to the patient’s desired comfort and cushioning, and we’ll even make sure it matches your team colors if you want!

It’s one of the best ways to invest in your smile as you head into a fun season of summer sports!

You Need An Athletic Mouthguard From A Dentist!

Not all mouthguards are equal, and here are some specific reasons an athletic mouthguard you get from an experienced dentist is far superior than what you’ll find in stores:

*A Worthy Investment*

There are two main reasons to spend a little bit more money now rather than buying a cheap mouthguard from a sporting goods store.

First, your smile is always a worthy investment. You want the right kind of helmet to protect your head from traumatic injuries, and the same should be true when it comes to protecting your teeth, gums, and overall dental health.

The second reason to invest in a mouthguard that’s been professionally made by a skilled dentist is that it can actually help save you money in the long run. Your custom athletic mouthguard will fit perfectly and comfortably, which means you’re far more likely to wear it and get your money’s worth out of it.

But it also means you can decrease your risk for dental injuries that could require extensive, invasive, and costly treatment to fix.

Here, the expression ‘you get what you pay for’ applies!

*Peak Performance*

To be at peak performance, an athlete needs to be able to move and breathe and speak easily. That’s why a custom fit is so important to your overall performance on the field.

With a loose mouthguard that’s been mass produced to fit anyone, you’re more easily distracted every time it slides around, and you’re more focused on breathing and communicating than you are on the game itself.

*Full Protection*

We’ve talked about prevention and performance, but the underlying issue here is protection.

What good is any piece of protective athletic gear, after all, if it doesn’t effectively shield the area it’s made for in the first place?

That’s a huge problem with store-bought mouthguards, even the boil-and-bite kind. You’re never going to get the individualized sizing you need for full coverage of your teeth and gums.

You wouldn’t wear knee pads that didn’t fit over your knees, so why would you wear a mouthguard that didn’t actually fit your mouth?
