If you’ve ever visited your dentist, you may know that brushing and flossing your teeth is essential if you’re interested in protecting your oral health. However, there are a few other things you can do to keep your teeth strong. Did you know using a mouthguard may help you keep your pearly whites healthy and strong?

Naturally, there are many options you could use for mouthguards. Still, you might be able to choose a store bought mouthguard, which tends to be more affordable, but might not be able to clean your teeth as well as other options. Furthermore, these mouthguards will probably be fairly uncomfortable.

As you may know, our dentist can also make a mouthguard to meet your unique needs. Because it’s made specifically for your teeth, this type of mouthguard will fit more comfortably and protect your teeth more thoroughly. Using a custom mouthguard could also help you breathe better than you could with a store bought mouthguard. Sadly, some mouthguards may also block airflow, which could have an impact on your health, since you need oxygen. Furthermore, some claim that you’ll be able to breathe better if you’re wearing a custom mouthguard than you’d be able to without.
