Dental Mouth Guard
Sports GuardA mouthguard is a protection accessory that acts as a shield for your teeth, lips, tongue, and jaw, protecting you or a loved one from blows and other types of impact, especially when participating in sports or recreational activities.
Mouthguards can also be used to protect braces or any type of fixed orthodontic gear in order to prevent injuries and keep from breaking the appliances. A dental mouth guard can also help prevent damage from grinding and bruxism, as well as protect fragile bridgework.
A Customized Solution
A custom-fitted mouthguard is a personalized mouthguard made by your dentist and adjusted, as needed, for a comfortable fit. A stock version is a pre-made mouthguard that is ready to wear; while this option works for some individuals, the vast majority will benefit from customized mouthguards for a better fit and greater ease in breathing and talking.
