Problems with Settling for a Boil and Bite Mouthguard for SportsMouthguards are growing in popularity due to increasing demand from contact sports enthusiasts. It is one of the reasons why many people are shifting their attention to these dental devices. Unfortunately, most users don't take their time to find out more about the best types of mouthguards for them. That's why many of them settle for the boil and bite mouthguards because they are cheap and readily available. Little do they know that this option is not the brightest idea for everyone, whether for sporting or everyday use. Here are the problems you are likely to encounter when using a boil and bite mouthguard.

Boil and Bite Mouthguards are a Bad Idea for Sports

You can buy boil and bite mouthguards from a chemist or supermarket at an affordable price. That is the best part of these dental devices. All you have to do is to soften them in boiling water and mold them to your teeth. However, they are not good enough to protect you from injuries when sporting. They are also uncomfortable and difficult to wear. Sometimes they cause cuts on your lips and gums when you collide with someone. These dental devices can contribute to broken jaws, chipped teeth, or even knocked-out teeth. These are serious injuries that can negatively impact your dental structure forever. 

Well-structured mouthguards should reduce or prevent injuries. Their sole purpose is to absorb any shock caused by a hit from a flying object. Most importantly, they should keep your teeth safe throughout the sporting event. If you want the best mouthguards you need to consider settling for those designed and fitted by a trained technician or dentist. The dentist will ensure that you choose a superior mouthguard that will fit perfectly and protect your teeth better than the substandard ones.
