Playing sports is a great outlet and form of exercise, but some sports have inherent physical contact that can possibly endanger your teeth and mouth. Athletic mouth guards offer protection to your teeth during activities where you might come into contact with other people or objects. While you can find generic, one-size-fits-all mouth guards at a number of stores, recent studies show those athletic guards are not giving your mouth its best possible protection. The mouth guard you purchase at a store can give you an improper fit and are vastly substandard to a professionally fabricated, custom mouth guard. A loose fitting mouth guard can lead to tooth, mouth and other serious injuries as it doesn’t properly protect your teeth and mouth when it comes into contact with another object. Our office offers custom athletic guards made from a mold of your mouth so it fits properly and offers maximum protection. Don’t suffer serious, or permanent, damage to your teeth or mouth by playing contact sports without a custom athletic mouth guard.
