Custom-fit sports mouth guards are made from safe EVA material and mouth guards protect your teeth during sports without hindering your speech or breathing.
The custom-fit sports mouth guard is fabricated in our office and is available in different colors and thickness.
Unlike store-bought guards, custom mouth guards fit snuggly, cushion your teeth, gums, lips, tongue and jaws. It helps dissipate the force from a blow to the face and avoid the risk of serious injury.
According to Wikipedia, a mouth guard is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums. A mouth guard is most often used to prevent injury in contact sports, as a treatment for bruxism or TMD, or as part of certain dental procedures, such as tooth bleaching. Depending on application, it may also be called a mouth protector, mouth piece, gum shield, gumguard, nightguard, occlusal splint, bite splint, or bite plane.
‘The American Dental Council promotes the importance of safety in maintaining oral health and the use of a properly fitted mouth guard as a best available protective device for reducing the incidence and severity of sports related dental injuries.’ (Statement posted at the American Dental Association website)
Dental professionals nationwide observe April as the National Facial Protection Month, promoting usage of athletic mouth guards since children and adults spring into a more active lifestyle.
