Mouth guards are an essential piece of equipment in contact sports. They should be worn by athletes of all ages who participate in sports such as:
- …any sport where contact is a possibility.
Wearing a mouth guard helps prevent against structural damage to your teeth and jaw and also helps prevent injuries such as lacerations to your cheeks, tongue, and lips. Mouth guards have also been shown to help decrease the risk of concussions.
Mouth guards are available in most any sporting goods store, but when purchasing a generic mouth guard, be aware guards like these do not offer the best level of protection, and are typically ill-fitting and uncomfortable.
For the highest level of comfort and protection, a custom mouth guard fitting is the best option. A custom mouth guard is created specifically for the optimal protection of your mouth. It is created with thin plastic that is hardened to protect your teeth. The thinness of the custom mouth guard allows for easy breathing and also allows for easy communication (especially important for your star quarterbacks calling out the plays).
