3 Ways A Custom Mouthguard Is Like Your Heart
What’s one of the first images that comes to mind when you think about Valentine’s Day?
Assuming you said ‘heart,’ you’re correct! V-day is all about matters of the heart. But unlike the heart-shaped candies and cards given out this time of year, the human heart is an oddly shaped and integral part to keeping you alive. Just like your custom mouthguard!
How is your heart like your custom mouthguard? Here are three ways they’re alike:
1. Strength Keeps You Safe
A strong heart is a healthy heart; and a healthy heart keeps you safe. How do you strengthen your heart? Athletics, cardio activities and building a healthy lifestyle.
Similarly, a custom mouthguard needs to be strong and well-constructed to keep you safe.
Unlike boil-and-bite mouthguards — which are created by biting down on the guard — custom mouthguards are pressed at 120 lbs. per square inch. The human mouth can only apply about 9 lbs. per square inch of pressure when fitting a boil-and-bite.
The specific engineering of a custom mouthguard helps to create an intimate fit that stays snuggly on the upper teeth, without having to bite or clench to keep it in place. That’s how you get the proper protection to keep you safe.
2. You’ve Gotta Have Flow
It’s a no brainer that a good heart has good blood flow. It’s the main function and purpose of your heart, after all, and without it you would have some serious health problems.
While flow isn’t the most important part of your custom mouthguard, it’s a close second. Proper airflow doesn’t just give you breathability, but the ability to clearly communicate and hydrate without removing your guard.
On top of that, proper airflow actually helps to enhance your performance!
How does a custom mouthguard do that? Well, when your mouthguard fits perfectly to your unique mouth structure, it isn’t overly bulky and doesn’t have unnecessary material in the free flow space — the areas behind the front teeth and inside on the molars.
3. Gear(ed) After Your Own Heart
When it comes down to your heart, only you know what makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. And only a custom mouthguard allows you to display your personality on your gear.
Start with your choice of 18 solid color options — including shiny metallic choices — and endless color combination possibilities. Next, add the logo of your choosing — from our free or metallic logo options to team logos or something even more personal. Finish with your personal ID to truly put a mark on your one-of-a-kind mouthguard.
