April is National Facial Protection Month. This is the time to take extra care of your teeth and gums, especially with spring only a few days away.
Once the weather warms up people of all ages become active and that means spring and summer sports. From kids in Little League to young adults skating at the park, custom-made mouthguards are an essential part of every uniform. From group to individual sports, every person should be fitted with a custom-made mouthguard.
Are All Mouthguards the Same?
According to Orange Coast Cosmetic Dentistry, there are three types of mouth protectors. Standard, Boil and Bite and Custom Made.
Standard-Standard or conventional mouth protectors are available from your pharmacy or local sporting goods store. Although these types of mouthguards do an okay job, they are cumbersome and uncomfortable. Every mouth is different so really there is no one size fits all mouth protector.
Boil and Bite Mouthguards
These types of mouthguards are also available at the pharmacy or sporting goods store, but are one-step up from standard mouth protectors. Just like the name, you warm up the mouthguard in water before putting it in your mouth and biting down. This creates an impression for a better fit.
Just like standard mouth protectors, boil and bite mouthguards can also be uncomfortable. After a few rounds of play, most people tend to leave it in their gym bag.
