A mouthguard’s sole purpose is to protect your teeth. However, if it protects your teeth but misaligns your jaw, is it really helping you? That’s one of the major differences between a store-bought and a laboratory-designed mouth guard. Laboratory-designed mouthguards not only protect your teeth but they protect your jaw, too.
At Irresistible Smiles in Chula Vista and San Diego, we care about your smile on a holistic level. We want to protect both your teeth and jaw while you’re playing sports.
Store-Bought Mouth Guards
I’m sure you remember your early sporting days. Anxious to get on the field, you would go out to the nearest sports store and purchase a mouth guard that looked decent. When you got home, you would boil it then shape it to your mouth. Half the time, you burned your gums. The other half, the mouth guard was too cold to shape.
When you finally shaped it properly, large pieces of plastic hung down your throat. Instead of gagging during the big game, you would cut half of the plastic off the mouthguard. If somehow, you managed this process without struggle, you still hated wearing your mouthguard. Every spare moment, you would chew on your mouthguard, decreasing its effectiveness and damaging your teeth. You may have opted for holding your mouthguard in your hand instead, increasing your risk of gum disease from bacteria.
