Your teeth do so much for you. They helps you speak, eat, connect with others, express joy. Shouldn’t you go out of your way to protect them? Consider custom-made mouthguards from Houston’s master dentist, Dr. Chet Hawkins. Sure, you can get almost any kind of mouthguard — from snore guards and night guards, to sports guards at the drug store or sporting-goods store — but they just aren’t what the doctor ordered. Seriously, some mouthguards are worse than none at all!
A recent Science Daily article reported on a study by the Academy of General Dentistry, summarizing, “High school football players wearing store-bought, over-the-counter mouthguards were more than twice as likely to suffer mild traumatic brain injuries/concussions than those wearing custom-made, properly fitted mouthguards… Researchers suggest that when it comes to buying a mouthguard, parents who want to reduce their child’s risk of a sports-related concussion should visit a dentist instead of a sporting goods store.” Read The Article
The same idea applies to all mouthguards: if they aren’t custom made for you, they won’t fit properly, feel comfortable, or function as intended. Every mouthguard we design, from kids’ sports guards to TMJ and bruxism guards, is based on a detailed mold of your mouth and teeth and takes into consideration all of your specific and personal needs. Your smile is worth it!
