Suit Up with Custom Made Mouth Guards

Friday, April, 1, 2022

It’s National Facial Protection Awareness month with Dr. Angela Cameron from Sophisticated-Smiles encouraging everyone to come in for a custom made mouth guard. Custom made mouth guards are just as important as helmet and pads.

Custom Made Mouth Guards are Crucial

Mouth guards are an essential part of any uniform regardless of the sport. People who enjoy racquetball and mountain bike enthusiasts should all schedule appointments for custom made mouth guards in Johnson City.

It’s easy to be measured for one. All you have to do is visit Dr. Angela Cameron who will examine your teeth and gums. X-rays and impressions are also needed for the best fit. Once your mouth guard is ready you will check it for fit. If all is well you will be ready for whatever the season has to offer.

Dr. Cameron recommends custom made mouth guards for all sports including:

  • Tennis
  • Water Polo
  • Raquetball
  • Handball
  • Martial Arts
  • Boxing
  • Soccer
  • Hockey
  • Field Hockey
  • Baseball
  • Football
  • Softball
  • Skateboarding
  • Surfboarding
  • Mountain Biking
  • Gymnastics

While there are probably a few more sports that should be listed, these are at the top when it comes to protecting you and your family members with custom made mouth guards.

With that being said, if you are in doubt talk to Dr. Cameron as she will recommend the best mouth protection.

When it comes to mouth protection there are three types of guards:

  1. Standard
  2. Boil and Bite
  3. Custom Made

Your dentist in Johnson City explains that while all of these mouth protectors will give you added protection they aren’t created equal.

1. Standard

Standard protectors are a one size fits all solution that is said to be cumbersome and uncomfortable. For this reason most athletes leave the standard mouthguard in the locker room.

2. Boil and Bite

Boil and Bite guards are made to fit the person by boiling in water and then biting down. Although this may seem like it would work if you have ever tried it you know it doesn’t fit exactly. In addition they are bulky making it tough to communicate or take a breath.

3. Custom Made Mouthguards

As previously mentioned the gold standard of mouth protection comes from your dentist in Johnson City. Furthermore this type of mouthguard is soft, pliable and most importantly comfortable. If you want to protect your mouth and the mouths of your family members there is no better guard.
