Mouthguards

Mouthguards

Mouthguards can prevent the sudden loss of teeth from dental injury. Many dental injuries can make everyday life challenging. Everything from chewing, smiling and eating. By preventing these injuries you can avoid dental emergencies.  Mouth protectors help cushion blows to the face, which reduces the chance of teeth being cracked or broken.

When Are Mouthguards Needed?

Whether you wear braces or not, protecting your smile while playing sports is essential. Mouthguards 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.

Types of Mouthguards 

Choosing the right mouthguard is essential. There are three basic types of mouthguards: the pre-made mouthguard, the “boil-and-bite” fitted mouthguard, and a custom-made mouthguard from your dentist. When you choose a mouthguard, 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. Your dentist can show you how to wear a mouthguard properly and how to choose the right mouthguard to protect your smile.
