WILSON ORTHODONTICS - C. Todd Wilson, DDSIf you want to play sports like the pros, you need to wear the same specialized equipment that keeps professional athletes safe and performing at their peak.

But here's a hint - I'm not talking about their shoes or jerseys. I'm talking about mouthguards, which are important for athletes in every sport.

Every year, Wilson Orthodontics provides free custom mouthguards to student athletes in our community.

This season, we're offering them to Sherwood Youth Football Players and Sherwood High School Varsity football players. Look for our Ad in the Gazette and check out our website for dates and times. When you come to our office at your designated time, we will take an impression of your teeth in order to make the custom guard.

Here's the difference in the different mouthguards on the market:

Ready Made. A ready made (or "stock") mouthguard is fine, especially if practice is in 20 minutes. But they're the least safe, least effective and least-preferred option. One size really doesn't fit all.

Mouth Formed. "Boil and bite" mouthguards are probably the most common out there. When heated in boiling water, they become pliable, allowing you to bite down and mold them. Unfortunately, the process isn't perfect and they tend to shift during play.

Custom Made. These are the safest option, and it's what the pros use too. At Wilson Orthodontics, we can tailor your custom mouthguard to your dental history and chosen sport.

As always, play hard, play safe!
