Importance of Mouthguard Use
submitted by Dr. Anne B. Filler, DMD, FAGD
Let the games begin! As fall approaches and school athletic programs start up, it’s easy to forget about the smile saving devices known as “Mouthguards.” Each year, 3-5 million U.S. children suffer sports injuries severe enough to require emergency room treatments, according to the National Youth Sports Safety Foundation. Many
of those students end up as part of the 15 million dental injuries that occur yearly. Any physical activity involves some risk, but injury rates are highest in impact sports.
Athletes that wear properly fitted mouthguards will find them to be comfortable, resilient, and, most importantly, protective. Dental professionals have found that custom mouthguards made with double layers of plastic protection offer double defenses without compromising comfort and wearability. The stock (Type I) mouthguards, while less costly, offer the least amount of protection because little can be done to adjust the fit. The

boil and bite (Type II) mouthguards are readily available in sporting stores, but require some adaptation to fit properly. Because of the less- than-ideal fit, they are not worn consistently, and often times end up outside of the mouth, creating another issue of cleanliness. Custom-made (Type III) athletic mouth guards are superior to stock and boil/bite because they offer the best fit since they are constructed from plaster models of the athlete’s mouth. They also provide excellent protection and if taken care of properly, will last for several years. Dental injuries are costly, so take time to ensure that your athlete is adequately protected with a simple investment in a custom mouthguard.
