Sports Mouthguards in Broomall, Pennsylvania

Store-Bought vs. Professional Mouthguards

Mouthguards found in the store often do not provide the custom-fit of professionally made mouthguards. Store-bought mouthguards do not conform to teeth, meaning that patients may feel the need to clench their teeth to keep them in place. These mouthguards may not last as long and often become misshapen.

Custom mouthguards are meant to stay in the mouth. Dental impressions are taken to make your mouthguard and to ensure it will fit properly and feel comfortable in your mouth. Custom-made sports mouthguards also make it easier for patients to speak and drink with the mouthguard in place.


Williamsburg Dental offers the Agility Guard, a high-quality custom mouthguard used by many professional athletes. The Agility Guard is customized to your natural bite and fits snugly over your teeth without having to be held in place by biting down. Studies have shown that athletes wearing a custom mouthguard can stay focused on their performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of custom mouthguards compared to over-the-counter options?

Custom mouthguards provide a precise, comfortable fit and superior protection for teeth and jaws. They are also more durable than over-the-counter choices, less bulky, and allow easier breathing and speaking.

What do most people use custom mouthguards for?

People use custom mouthguards to protect their teeth during sports. They also prevent damage from teeth grinding (bruxism), treat TMJ disorders, and treat jaw pain. Custom mouthguards also help with snoring and sleep apnea.

How long do custom mouthguards last?

With proper care, custom mouthguards can last three years before needing replacement. They last much longer than over-the-counter options.

How do I care for my custom mouthguard?

Rinse your mouthguard before and after each use. Clean it daily with a soft toothbrush and mild soap. Next, store it in a vented container. Avoid exposing it to high temperatures.

Are custom mouthguards only for athletes?

No, custom mouthguards benefit anyone who grinds their teeth or suffers from TMJ disorders. They can also benefit people with sleep apnea.

Do I need a prescription for a custom mouthguard?

You do not need a prescription for a generic mouthguard. However, custom mouthguards require a prescription from a dentist who will assess your needs. They need to take impressions of your teeth and oversee the fabrication of your individualized mouthguard. This ensures maximum protection and comfort, whether for sports or to prevent teeth grinding.
