You should never gamble with your oral health! But that is exactly what you’re doing if you and your family members you don’t wear athletic mouthguards during sports. While we can treat dental emergencies like broken or knocked-out teeth, we’d prefer to help you avoid them in the first place. Custom-made athletic mouthguards at our Winfield location in Laredo cut down dramatically on sports injuries.
Over five million teeth are knocked out every year, and we don’t want your smile to be one of those impacted. While you can purchase one-size-fits-all mouthguards from stores, they won’t protect your smile the way a custom sports mouthguard can. Here is how our mouthguards outperform stock mouthguards:
- We use dental impressions to make an appliance designed just for your mouth.
- The custom fit ensures it will stay in your mouth better than a store-bought mouthguard – and feel better too.
- With our expertise, we’ll ensure your mouthguard is the correct thickness to provide protection for your sport.
- As your family dentist, we know your dental history and unique features of your mouth – and we’ll make sure the design accommodates them.
- You won’t need a frustrating boil-and-bite process to prepare your mouthguard for wear.
You can even customize your sports mouthguard with your team colors! A boil-and-bite mouthguard from your local drugstore can never be adjusted to fit the specific contours of your smile. A custom fit can mean the difference between a good game and a dental emergency.

Your Mouth Needs Protection For Many Activities
Contact sports like football and hockey aren’t the only activities where you need dental protection. The American Dental Association also recommends wearing a sports guard for activities like gymnastics, skateboarding, and mountain biking. In fact, a customized device can help avoid damage that can occur from clenching your teeth while exercising.
If you suffer dental damage, we can repair it with restorative dentistry. Still, it is easier and less expensive to prevent damage from occurring in the first place. For athletic mouthguards at our Winfield location in Laredo, call 956-517-2695.
