    From Dr. Mills:

    Mouthguards come in many forms from store bought ones to dentist created custom fitted mouthguards.   All can help but only those that are correctly fitted and properly worn will do the job well. The best mouthguard is one that fits well, is comfortable, stays in place and does not negatively impact breathing or speaking.   A custom fitted mouthguard made from a model of the players teeth is currently thought to be the best way to achieve these goals.

    Excellent dentist created custom fitted mouthguards can however be difficult to get.  They tend to be expensive, often costing over a hundred dollars. They require two visits to the dentist both for an impression and for the fitting,  And, for many growing players, they only last one season as the teeth are changing continully through certain ages.

    Casco Bay Hockey and Dr. Stephen Mills are trying to bring custom fitted mouthguards to our players in a cost effective and convenient way to our players.  At the session on 11/17 players can have an impression taken for a mouthguard at CBA in Falmouth. Then on 12/1 the players come back to have their mouthguard fitted, adjusted and fine tuned to make sure that they will serve the athlete well.  

    The cost of each mouthguard will be $40 and you should talk to your own dentist to see that this a fantastic price. Each mouthguard is created using an heat pressure lamination technique which is currently thought to be the gold standard for mouth protection.  The athlete will be given his or her model and a case for the guard.

    Dr. Mills has been involved in Sports Dentistry for many years and is passionate about young athletes wearing quality protective devices correctly and comfortably.  He leads mouthguard activities for teams often as a commitment to the young players of Maine. He has just written a chapter in a new textbook on Sports Dentistry on mouthguards and is looked upon as a knowledgeable lecturer, teacher and writer in the world of sports dentistry internationally.
