Sports mouth guards are oral appliances that fit over your teeth to protect your smile from injury. They are designed to prevent teeth from being chipped, cracked or knocked out; to prevent injury to the soft oral tissues, including the lips, tongue, cheeks and gums; and to reduce the likelihood of jaw and neck injuries.
There are several types of mouth guards available. Stock mouth guards and “boil-and-bite” mouth guards can often be purchased at your local sporting goods stores. However, these generic mouth guards do not provide as much protection for your mouth and smile as a custom mouth guard. Custom mouth guards are designed specifically for your mouth and fit perfectly over your teeth to provide the maximum protection possible. They also help keep your airways open so that you can breathe more easily while playing your sport.
We invite you to contact our office today for more information about sports mouth guards and to schedule an appointment with our experienced dentist.
