The use of mouth guards for sports has become commonplace and for some contact sports it is now a mandatory part of the uniform.
Mouth guards are designed to protect the teeth in the event of a collision with another player or being hit by a bat, stick or other piece of sporting equipment. Typically made of a thermoplastic compound, over the counter sports mouth guards are often sufficient, but not always comfortable.
- A comfortable fit: they are made from impressions of your teeth
- Maximum available protection: the secure fit ensures the best possible protection of teeth and gums and may reduce the forces of impact that can cause a concussion
- Better compliance: with the ability to drink fluids while wearing it, users are more likely to keep a comfortable mouth guard in place
- Oral appliance protection: a custom fit mouth guard can be made to accommodate braces and other oral appliances to avoid breakage and damage to the gums
Fitting for a custom mouth guard is quick, painless and can be completed during a routine preventive care visit to our Arnold dentist office. Once complete, we will contact you for pick up.
