Mouthguards, also called mouth protectors, help cushion a blow to the
face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue,
face or jaw. They typically cover the upper teeth and are a great way to
protect the soft tissues of your tongue, lips and cheek lining. Knowing how
to prevent injuries like these is especially important if you participate in
organized sports or other recreational activities.
When it comes to protecting your mouth, a mouthguard is an essential
piece of athletic gear that should be part of your standard equipment
from an early age. In fact, studies show that athletes are 60 times more
likely to suffer harm to the teeth if they’re not wearing a mouthguard.
While collision and contact sports, such as boxing, are higher-risk sports
for the mouth, you can experience a dental injury in non-contact activities too, such as gymnastics and skating.
The best mouthguard is one that has been custom made for your mouth by your dentist because they are customized, and offer the best fit.
Your smile and
dental health are
our top priority.
