M2 Dental has helped countless athletes and active children and adults in Vancouver protect their smiles from injury.

In general, there are three types of mouth guards that are available: a store-bought mouth guard which comes off a shelf, a mouth guard known as a “boil and bite” device, and a custom-made mouthguard. Learn more about each one below.
Store-bought mouth guards are available in almost any sporting good store or online athletic site. While they are readily available, they do have a distinct disadvantage in that they are basically a one-size-fits-all concept with zero customization available for your unique and individual needs.
While this version of a mouth guard offers a little more customization than the off-the-shelf versions, it can still be uncomfortable for a lot of wearers because of its inability to be fully customized to the wearer’s mouth. Both the off-the-shelf and boil-and-bite mouth guards are also limited in their ability to provide full protection to the wearer’s teeth.
Because custom-made mouth guards are precision fit to the wearer’s mouth and teeth, they offer the most comfortable and best protection when compared to the other two options. The bottom line is this: if you want to have maximum protection and comfort, there is no substitute than a custom-made mouth guard in Vancouver from M2 Dental.
