What Are Mouth Guards?
Whether you wear braces or not, protecting your smile while playing sports is essential. Mouth guards help protect your teeth and gums from injury. If you participate in any kind of full-contact sport, the American Dental Association recommends that you wear a mouthguard.
Choosing the right mouthguard is essential. There are three basic types of mouth guards: the pre-made mouth guard, the “boil-and-bite” fitted mouthguard, and a custom-made mouthguard from our office. When you choose a mouth guard, be sure to pick one that is tear-resistant, comfortable and well-fitted for your mouth, easy to keep clean, and does not prevent you from breathing properly.
We can show you how to wear a mouth guard properly and how to choose the right one to protect your smile.
