Athletic Mouth Guards
In today's society, adults, as well as children participate in activities in which orofacial trauma can occur. Properly fitted professional mouth-guards have been shown to assist in providing necessary protection to the teeth and supporting facial structures. Professionally fitted mouth-guards are much more comfortable than store-bought, heat fitted guards because they are custom made to the patient’s own dentition. For this reason, they are less bulky and make speaking and breathing much easier than with a generic, over-the-counter guard. Custom made mouth-guards can be fabricated for any type of sport and are an important tool to help prevent orofacial injuries and possible future dental problems associated with orofacial injuries.
