A mouth guard is used by athletes of all ages to protect teeth from trauma during competitive and individual sporting activities. They are made of a variety of materials, some relatively flexible and others relatively rigid
If you or your children are in sports you likely know about over the counter mouth guards. These mouth guards are a heat and mold type mouth guard and offer the least amount of protection. Mouth guards fitted by dentist will protect your teeth in the best way possible.
Mouth guards typically cover the upper teeth, and are designed to protect against broken teeth, cut lips and other damage to your mouth. If you wear braces or a fixed dental appliance, such as a bridge, on your lower jaw, we suggest a mouth protector.
