Custom Athletic Mouthguards Simply Protect Better

Custom Athletic Mouthguards Simply Protect Better | Wellesley, MA

Now that the weather is nice and warm, it’s time to get outside and get some fresh air. From getting some friends together for volleyball or baseball at the park to riding your bike around, there’s a lot of fun and healthy exercise to get this summer.

However, these are not without risks even for your teeth. A bad tumble on your bike or getting hit in the mouth can damage your teeth. That’s why you need to call our Wellesley, MA dental office today at 781-304-8172 to get a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard. Dr. Tocci is well trained to give you a mouthguard that both protects your smile and feels comfortable.

Being Active Puts Teeth At Risk

The problem with sports injuries and similar accidents is that you never know when they are going to happen. You could be just fine and then, suddenly, something goes very wrong. Maybe it rained last night and the field is sloppy. You can even get into an accident because someone else playing didn’t know what they were doing.

That’s why athletic mouthguards are needed for so many activities. IT’s also why many schools and leagues have started requiring players have athletic mouthguards. Here are some of the problems that can happen:

  • Getting tripped up on the basketball court.
  • Taking a hard tackle or check.
  • Running into someone.
  • Falling off your bike.
  • Getting hit in the mouth by a ball or puck.

By calling Tocci Dental Associates today, you can get an appointment to customize an athletic mouthguard for your smile. Which would you prefer: Getting a dental implant to replace a tooth knocked out during the game, or getting a comfortable athletic mouthguard and keeping your teeth?

How Custom Mouthguards Are Better

There are generic and “boil-and-bite” mouthguards available in sporting good stores, but you know the old piece of advice: You get what you pay for. Simply put, a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard from Dr. Tocci is better than any cheap mouthguard you can get in stores. Here are several reasons why.


Imagine playing football or hockey and being given a helmet that doesn’t fit right. It keeps spinning around or even falling off. How safe are you? Unfortunately, that’s the problem with the mouthguards you can buy in stores. Because they’re designed for “everyone,” they’re really designed for no one.

But by calling our Wellesley, MA dental office at 781-304-8172, you can get a mouthguard that’s custom-fitted by Dr. Tocci to your teeth in particular. Because it fits right, it will do a better job of protecting your smile from sports injuries. Isn’t that why you’re getting this at all?


Having a great fit with your mouthguard is more than just about better protection. If you wear clothes that are too big or small for you, you can have trouble not thinking about it. That means your mouthguard could bother you while you should be focusing on the game. And if you’re getting an athletic mouthguard for a child, they’re going to be more likely to “forget” something that feels uncomfortable.

Dr. Tocci has the experience needed to make your athletic mouthguard fit right. By getting one that fits more comfortably, you will be able to focus better.


Communicating during a game can be vital. But with a generic, store-bought mouthguard, that can be harder. These are bulky and can get in the way of trying to talk. They can also make it harder to breathe as much as you need when you’re playing hard.

A custom-fitted athletic mouthguard from Tocci Dental Associates is different. Because it’s custom-made to fit your teeth, it will be less bulky. That means you’ll find it easier to talk and breathe compared to those other mouthguards.
