One of the easiest ways to protect your teeth, face, tongue, lips and jaw is to wear a mouth guard during sports. If you or your child participates in a sport, see your Dental Associates dentist to be fitted for a custom mouth guard.
Contact sports like football, hockey, boxing, and karate are high-risk sports for mouth, dental and facial injuries. But even non-contact sports like soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, gymnastics and skating can include incidental contact that can be dangerous for your teeth. A mouth guard, which is usually worn on the upper teeth, will help protect your teeth and your surrounding facial area.
A custom mouth guard is made specifically to fit your mouth. Your dentist simply makes a mold of your teeth and mouth, and creates a custom mouth guard from that mold. If you or your child has braces or bridge work, a mouth guard is essential to protecting your cheeks and lips from any cuts that your hardware could cause if you get hit in the face.
