Its Sports Guard Season!
If you search for gum shields or sports mouth guards on the internet you will find Sports Direct and Amazon offering many cheap options and websites such as Mumsnet endorsing these. With a significant difference in price compared to custom made sports mouth guards I can see the appeal of boil and bite mouth guards for parents. After all, we know how often young people lose things at school!
However, whilst respecting everyone’s differing financial situations, as dental healthcare professionals we have a responsibility to share our knowledge about the benefits of custom sports mouth guards with our patients and their parents.
Below are the key benefits of custom mouth guards:
- it fits immediately, meaning once it is in it will form a vacuum seal and it won’t fall out or affect breathing
- the thickness in custom made guards is double or triple compared to single layer for boil and bites. (The Oral Health Foundation points out that the material for boil and bites is at its thinnest where it is needed most)
- children are more likely to wear them as they are comfortable to wear
