A properly fitted mouthguard, or mouth protector, is an important piece of athletic gear that should be worn during any activity that could result in a blow to the face or mouth.
Mouthguards can prevent serious injuries like concussions, brain hemorrhages, jaw fractures, and neck injuries by helping avoid situations where the lower jaw is jammed into the upper jaw. Although there are different types of mouthguards, a custom-made guard from your dentist offers the best protection, comfort, and fit. Talking and breathing are a breeze because they are not as big and bulky as the ones you may find at sporting goods or drug stores. Don’t take your teeth for granted. Be cool and protect your smile – wear a mouthguard! #onelifeonesmile
