A mouth guard is a dental appliance used to help lower the risk of oral injuries during physical activities, such as contact sports. Accidents can happen when participating in any athletic activity; without the use of a mouth guard, injuries that could occur include chipped or broken teeth, damage to the root of the tooth, broken crowns, fractured jaws, and concussion. For this reason, any athlete- adults and children alike- should be fitted for a mouth guard. There are many different options available such as stock mouth guards and the boil-and-bite variety of mouth guard, which can be purchased at your local sports store; however, the safest and most effective option is a custom-fitted mouth guard which can be made by your dentists or orthodontist. With custom fitted mouth guards, your dental professional makes an impression of your teeth and uses the impression as a mold to create the custom-fitted mouth guard. This allows for the mouth guard to cover all the teeth and stay firmly in place, offering maximum protection against injury.
