TOP MOUTH GUARDS
Top Mouth Guards Can Save Your Teeth During Sports!
A mouth guard is one of the most essential pieces of safety equipment an athlete can have. A mouth guard is a soft plastic or laminate device used in sports to prevent oral injuries to the teeth, mouth, cheeks, tongue and jaw. The types of dental injuries that can occur without the use of a mouth guard are:
– Chipped or broken teeth.
– Lip and cheek injuries.
– Root damage to the teeth.
– Fractured jaws, and concussions.
A guard is recommended if you are active in a sport where you can get hit in the head such as hockey, football, basketball, boxing, gymnastics, martial arts, racquetball, soccer, wrestling, and many more.
What to expect
Although there are many different types of mouth guards available, our clinics offer custom-fit sports guards and anti-concussion guards that provide maximum protection compared to boil and bite and other store bought guards. To make your custom sports guard; a dental assistant will take an impression of your mouth and create a model. This model will then be used to create a guard either in our office or at a lab. They can be made in a variety of colors to match any team.
They are durable, easy to clean, odorless and tasteless, and stay firmly in place during action.
