Custom FitU Mouthguard

Help prevent your athlete from serious injuries with FitU Mouthguards: Personally designed by Wesley Dental to help prevent tooth-loss, jaw injuries and minimize the effects of concussions.

Mouthguards play several important roles for athletes. The most obvious benefit is protecting your teeth and preventing serious mouth injuries. Mouthguards can also reduce the risk of jaw injuries. However, it may come as a surprise to learn that mouthguards can also reduce the risk of brain injuries for athletes, especially if they are wearing a custom-made mouthguard.

A recent study published in the 2014 issue of General Dentistry, supports the claim that custom-fit mouthguards, like the one that Wesley Dental can provide, can prevent some sports-related concussions. FitU mouthguards are specifically made to help absorb shock, stabilize the head and neck, and limit movement caused by a direct hit to the jaw.

Custom-made FitU Mouthguard vs. store-bought:

The 2014 published study found that high school football players wearing store-bought mouthguards were more than twice as likely to suffer mild traumatic brain injuries than those wearing properly fitted, custom mouthguards. The research showed that 8.3 percent of the athletes wearing over-the-counter standard mouthguards suffered brain injuries. However, only 3.6 percent of the players wearing custom mouthguards suffered concussions. Store bought boil and bite and stock mouthguards are thinner and poorly fitted. They offer little protection to the athlete. 39% of all dental injuries are sports related. Five million teeth are lost each year in sporting activities. Properly fitted, thicker mouthguards not only help protect teeth, but can help protect against other serious injuries as well.

Why Wesley Dental for your custom-made FitU Mouthguard?

Wesley Dental is equipped with the latest advanced technology. Our E4D Dental System allows for extremely precise digital scans and on-site custom designing and fabrication of your final custom-fit mouthguard. Implementing this method bypasses conventional, messy impressions and also assures an accurate mouthguard fit. It also allows Dr. Wesley and his highly skilled team to raise the standard of care by following each step of your custom-made FitU Mouthguard personally rather then relying on off-site dental lab facilities.

How Wesley Dental creates your custom-made FitU Mouthguard:

Quick and Easy…instead of a messy impression, a digital scan will be taken using an intra-oral camera wand. The digital scan is used to create a 3D image of your upper and/or lower arch. A well-trained Wesley Dental member uses Cad-Cam dental software to tweak the 3D image. The final digital image is then sent to a 3D printer. The 3D printer is used to sculpt a model of your upper and/or lower arch, personalized with your name. The model is then fitted with the protective material used in the final preparation of your custom-made FitU Mouthguard.

NFSHSA “Protect Your Athlete” Mandates:

The National Federation of State High School Association “mandates the use of mouthguards in football, field hockey, ice hockey, lacrosse, and wrestling (wrestlers wearing braces). The Sports Medicine Advisory Committee (SMAC) recommends athletes “consider the use of properly fitted, unaltered mouthguards for participation in any sport that has the potential for oral facial injury from body or playing apparatus (stick, bat, ball, etc). Double layer protection for full contact sports: Football, Hockey, Lacrosse: $125 Single layer protection for low impact sport: Soccer, Wrestling, Baseball, Basketball: $95
