Mouth protector

Recreation experts have long recommended a mouth protector as an important piece of safety equipment. Without one, an athlete on the playing field runs the risk of acquiring a toothless grin! You’ve probably seen mouth protectors used in contact sports, such as hockey, football, and boxing. Coaches and team members know that mouth protectors cushion blows that would otherwise cause broken teeth, injuries to the lips and face, and sometimes even jaw fractures.

There are basically two types of mouth protectors:


1. Pre-fabricated:


A pre-fabricated mouth guard can be purchased at stores, these mouth guards are often only offered in a general size offering.

2. Custom: 

Mouth guards can also be fabricated by your dentist using an exact model (impression) of your mouth. This type of mouth guard provides superior fit and protection.

You don’t have to be a football player to benefit from wearing a mouth protector. Any adult or child involved in a recreational activity that poses a risk of injury to the mouth can obtain smile protection with this important safety device.

With good dental care your teeth can stay clean and strong and your gums healthy for many years - and many more smiles- to come!
