A good mouthguard should be adapted to your mouth. Only a custom-made mouthguard can provide you with the highest level of protection.
How is a custom-made mouthguard better than a commercial mouthguard?
Custom-made mouthguards are made in the lab using a precise impression of your teeth. Depending on the sport you practice, the mouthguard can be reinforced in certain strategic spots. To best protect your mouth, a custom-made mouthguard is highly recommended. One of the main benefits is that it can be worn in conjunction with an orthodontic device.

Mouthguards soften blows that could otherwise lead to serious injury, like a broken jaw. They can also help reduce the severity of head injuries, like concussions.
Don’t all mouthguards have the same features?
Commercial mouthguards, including those that take on the shape of your mouth, don’t meet optimal protection criteria. Although the second type is a better option, both of these models have their weak points that could lead to serious consequences.
A custom, professionally-made mouthguard meets all safety requirements:
- Stability and comfort
- Doesn’t affect speech or breathing
- Can be reinforced in strategic spots
- Can be personalized (colour, logo)
