Got Pickleball Game? Get a Custom Mouthguard

Pickleball is a really big dill. (Sorry!) According to the Association of Pickleball Professionals, nearly 50 million adults in the U.S. have played it at least once in the past year. And it’s becoming increasingly popular among folks under 40. If you play, we bet you love it. If you don’t play, you may want to try it out. Either way, you should get a custom mouthguard

This short video discusses how to pick the right safety glasses for pickleball. And that’s a great idea. But don’t forget about your smile! According to the American Association of Endodontists, more than 5 million teeth get knocked out every year. And teeth get broken and cracked. Many of these accidents happen during athletic activities. With the rise in pickleball popularity, the number of injuries will grow too. 

Every sporting goods store sells athletic mouthguards – but they simply don’t work as well as a custom-made guard. At our Portland, OR office, your dentist takes impressions of your teeth to create a mouthguard that fits perfectly. You won’t need a boil-or-bite process, and it will feel so comfortable you won’t mind wearing it. 

In addition to sports mouthguards, we provide three other kinds of mouthguards:

  • Sleep Apnea Mouthguards – In addition to disturbing your rest, sleep apnea causes daytime fatigue and contributes to many health problems, including heart disease. A custom mouthguard will keep your airway clear so you can breathe easily throughout the night. 
  • TMJ Mouthguards – A TMJ disorder results in a sore jaw, frequent headaches, and other unpleasant symptoms. We can provide you with a mouthguard that facilitates healing of your temporomandibular joints (TMJ). 
  • Teeth Grinding Mouthguards – Grinding your teeth can destroy the enamel. Keep your smile safe with a mouthguard that stops the grinding.
