Namely, during these sports, there is a great danger of being hit in the teeth, possibly causing their damage. Thus, more and more athletes decide to protect them with these special mouth guards. Even though all types of these products are able to do their jobs right and keep the teeth of their users safe, some are simply better than the others.
Custom Mouth Guards vs Over-the-counter Mouth Guards
As far as these protective items are concerned, many people decide to buy mouth guards which are bought, boiled and then bitten in order for them to take the form our teeth have and fit properly when we wear them. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, since these are known for being unsuitable and falling off often. Moreover, these, over-the-counter mouth guards are quite hard. Thus, they may cause dental problems to those who wear them, especially professional athletes since they wear these most of the time. There are several other drawbacks of these generic mouth guards, making them a wrong choice. However, there is a better one, and that is ordering a custom made mouth guard, fitting your teeth and mouth perfectly and providing the best possible support as well as protection.
