If you’re a parent, you’ll understand the horrified reaction of Kelly Clarkson to actor Joe Manganiello’s damaged smile. His shocking smile reveal helps highlight the importance of a custom mouthguard.

In the video, Manganiello explains that a childhood sports injury is the cause of his dental damage. Sports injuries are a common issue, and mouthguards help prevent them –  as research collected by the American Dental Association shows.

For the best protection, you should have your dentist fit your child for a custom-made mouthguard instead of buying one from a store. Since it’s made using dental impressions, a custom athletic mouthguard will fit perfectly and stay in your child’s mouth better than a store-bought guard. Plus, you won’t need to struggle through a boil-and-bite process to adjust the fit before the first wearing.
