In many sports a mouthguard for the teeth is either required or encouraged.
There are several types of mouthguards on the market.
The most popular type of mouthguard is referred to as the "boil and bite" mouthguard made at home by purchasing a cheap rubber mouthguard, boiling it in water and biting into it to make a mold of your teeth.
Dentists can also make mouthguards using a mold of the teeth
A dentist-made mouthguard is a great idea for all types of sports. Football, basketball, soccer, hockey, and even sports like skateboarding or martial arts.
Well made mouthguards are comfortable. Comfortable mouthguards get used, and no mouthguard is effective if it is torn up, uncomfortable, or does not cover and protect the teeth.
