A Custom Mouthguard Makes For A Safer, Better Athlete! [BLOG]
Before it’s too late, make sure you come to Attleboro Family Dental to get a custom athletic mouthguard in time for your favorite summer sports season!
Today, we’re telling you why customized is better and which players could benefit most!
Why You Need A Custom Athletic Mouthguard
Unlike a boil and bite mouthguard from a store, an athletic mouthguard from a skilled dentist, like Dr. Hannawi, offers much more reliable and comfortable protection against injuries.
It’s measured precisely to fit you perfectly so it won’t slip or shift when you’re trying to focus on the game.
That’s why a mouthguard you get from a dentist makes you a safer, better athlete!
Athletes Who Need A Custom Fit
All athletes should be aware of the risks their sport could pose for their physical and oral health.
But there are some sports that are particularly hazardous to your smile.
Here are the players who definitely want to consider coming to Attleboro Family Dental for a custom-made athletic mouthguard!
*The Martial Artist*
One on one physical combat, like most martial arts, will put your teeth and gums directly in the path of a hand, elbow, foot, or knee. The best way to shield your mouth from unnecessary injury is a mouthguard that won’t shift around on you, leaving parts of your mouth exposed and vulnerable and breaking your concentration.
*The Baseball Player*
This is the type of sport that’s played almost year-round these days thanks to travel teams and indoor training facilities.
Nothing can wreck your smile and threaten your oral health quite like a baseball or a bat flying at your mouth at impressive speeds.
The sun could blind you at the wrong time and have your teeth meeting an unfriendly pop fly, or you misjudge a curve ball and step into the line of fire as you swing for the pitch.
Even when you’re not quite on the field just yet, how many times do you think we’ve seen a young player who’s been nailed in the face with a bat while warming up on deck?
That’s why you need a well-fitting mouthguard that will protect you against the threats of baseball!
*The Hockey Player*
It doesn’t matter if you play ice or field hockey, both will put your smile at risk due to the instruments used in each type of hockey.
With the puck or ball being literally smacked into the air, your mouth can become a target.
The same is true in regard to the jungle of hockey sticks and elbows in close proximity to your face at all times.
Maybe this goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway!
It’s no secret that one of the most risky sport for your teeth is boxing. After all, the whole idea behind this sport centers on repeated blunt jabs to your opponent’s face.
That means your opponent is trying to do the very same thing to you!
A slippery, loose mouthguard will fail to protect your mouth when it really counts. A custom fit will keep it in place so your teeth, gums, jaw, and head are much safer round after round.

Summer’s almost here, which means you have only a few more weeks to get to Attleboro Family Dental for a customized mouthguard.
It’s an affordable, simple way to invest in your smile because it will protect your teeth, gums, and mouth from potentially traumatic injuries.
A safer athlete is a better athlete!
