Custom Sports Mouthguards in Baltimore, MD
An injury to the teeth can often be devastating and may require extensive restorative and cosmetic dental procedures to fix. Your dentist in Baltimore, MD will protect your teeth during contact sports with a sports mouthguard that is custom-fit to your mouth and durable for long-lasting protection.
Dr. Lazer offers his patients the ArmourBite UA Performance mouthguard to both protect their teeth and relax the jaw during athletic play or workouts. During physical exertion, we naturally clench our teeth and tighten the jaw. This has been found to actually reduce our overall strength and fatigue us faster.
Custom sports mouthguards are designed to improve balance, strength, and overall performance.
The Armourbite mouthguard uses patented Power Wedge technology that helps to maintain the natural spacing between the top and bottom teeth and reduce the stress placed on the jaw from teeth clenching.
Relaxing the jaw will improve strength and endurance needed during competitive sports and vigorous workouts.
Dr. Lazer will fit a patient with the appropriate mouthguard to be sure that the maximum benefits are achieved and the teeth are protected. He will educate his patients who are active or participate in contact sports on the importance of wearing protective devices and maintaining them with proper care and cleaning.
Permanent teeth cannot grow back- protect them during physical play. If you or your child will be playing sports this fall, contact Dr. Lazer as soon as possible to schedule an appointment to be fitted with your custom UA ArmourBite appliance before you hit the field!
Custom-made sports mouthguards can prevent mouth and tooth injuries by more than 90%. Contact our Baltimore dentist office to have a custom sports mouthguard made. We use advanced digital technology to ensure the tightest, most secure fit.

ArmourBite™ UA Performance Mouthwear
More than just a mouth guard, ArmourBite™ UA Performance Mouthwear™ is backed by some of the biggest names in pro sports.
Why? Because they know first-hand that the breakthrough design increases athletic performance, strength, and endurance. It also offers superior comfort and protection when compared to over-the-counter options.
All the power is in you right now, but your instinctive reflex system blocks it. When you train and compete, your natural reaction is to clench your jaws, which compresses your jaw joints, releasing performance-sapping hormones that produce stress, fatigue, and distraction.
Custom-fit mouthpieces with ArmourBite™ technology prevent your teeth from clenching, pivot your jaw forward and relieve pressure on your jaw joints. With UA Performance Mouthwear, you can perform at your full power, because excess stress, fatigue, and distraction are gone.
Custom Mouthguards for Sports: FAQs
Can I use a sports mouthguard at night for teeth grinding?
No. Do not use your custom sports mouthguard as a night guard for teeth grinding while you sleep. Sports mouthguards and night guards are two different products used for two separate purposes and fit differently specifically for those reasons. You risk damaging your sports mouthguard if you wear it for teeth grinding issues. Even worse, you can damage your teeth and gums if you use them incorrectly.
How do you sanitize a sports mouthguard?
Taking care of your mouthguard is simple. First, make sure you have a safe place to put it, such as a case, while not in use. Before wearing it, rinse it with water and a little hand soap. After wearing it and before putting it away, clean it with another soap and water rinse. If your mouthguard is starting to discolor, it’s time to replace it. Mouthguards should be replaced every year for optimal performance and the best protection possible.
Do sports mouthguards protect against concussions?
Not necessarily. Studies have shown that there is no conclusive evidence that concussions can be prevented while wearing a custom mouthguard. However, custom mouthguards can significantly reduce the impact from a hit to your mouth and teeth. Mouthguards that fit snuggly and are precisely measured to fit your mouth offer the most protection from direct hits to your mouth.
How long does it take to make a custom mouthguard?
The entire process of fitting and creating a custom mouthguard takes about 2 weeks. Patients will need to have an impression taken which will be sent to a laboratory to create the mouthguard. Then the laboratory will send it back to the dental office and the patient can pick it up.
