Mouthguards (Sports)


Here at Classic Smiles we will be happy to provide you with quality sports mouthguards. Sports mouthguards are a device worn over the teeth to protect them from the head and face blows that happen regularly during sports. They are worn in a variety of sports where falling, body contact or fast-moving sporting equipment like balls and pucks are involved. These sports include football, boxing, and baseball.

Mouthguards are usually worn over the upper teeth to protect them from being broken as well as protecting the lips from being cut. Lower teeth guards are less common unless you have a fixed dental appliance like a bridge already applied.

All mouthguards are resilient and tear-resistant yet comfortable enough to be worn for extended periods. The aims of mouthguards are to secure the teeth from impact as well as not restricting the wearer's speech or breathing. There are three different types of mouthguards.

Different Types of Sporting Mouthguards


Custom-made mouthguards are individually made in our office. These custom-fit pieces are the most comfortable option as well as offering the best protection. Our dentists will make an impression of the teeth and then construct the mouthguard around the model of your teeth. Athletes will wear custom-made pieces.

Boil and Bite mouthguards are pre-formed pieces that are altered with boiling water. Individuals bite into the warm plastic for a customized fit. These can be brought in store but are not as secure as custom-made pieces. Stock mouthguards are inexpensive and can be brought directly off the shelf from retailers and pharmacies. These types of guards often aren't effective because they don't fit well, are bulky, and can make both breathing and speaking difficult.

If you have orthodontic work, our dentists will determine the best mouthguard for your needs. Do not wear any orthodontic retainers or other removable dental appliances during contact sports. Invisalign® trays are the one exception to this rule, and they can be worn alongside a mouthguard when playing sport. When you get your custom-made mouthguard, ask our dentists about your orthodontic or dentistry appliances.

There are many types of mouthguard design options including striped, clear or bold colored.

Why You Need a Sporting Mouthguard


Dental injuries are highly common in both contact and non-contact sports, especially when played between the ages of 7-14. Not using a mouthguard may lead to traumatic dental injuries, arrested tooth development and the need for root canal or early extraction.

Males are twice as likely as females to sustain a dental trauma whilst playing sport and are likely to experience multiple dental injuries in their lifetime. If you don't wear a mouthguard whilst playing sports and you are hit in the face, your teeth may be broken by the force of the impact. You may also suffer from long-term effects, including jaw ache, infections, and gum disease.
