SPORTS MOUTH GUARDS
Dr. Roger Anderson recommends that anyone who participates in any kind of athletic or recreational activity wear a custom sports mouth guard. These oral appliances are designed to help prevent injury to your teeth, gums, cheeks and jaw, as well as reduce the likelihood of neck injuries and help you breathe better.
Sports mouth guards are often mandatory pieces of equipment worn during high-contact sports such as wrestling, football, hockey, soccer and rugby. However, even those who participate in low-contact sports may benefit from using an athletic mouth guard, as it works to keep your smile safe and free from injury.
There are several types of athletic mouth guards available for your use. Many sporting goods stores carry “stock” or “bite-and-boil” mouth guards, which will provide protection for your teeth and can simply be placed in the mouth. However, a generic mouth guard will not provide the same level of protection as a custom mouth guard. Custom-made sports mouth guards are much more effective in protecting your smile, as they are designed to fit comfortably in your mouth and protect your teeth and other oral structures without compromising your ability to breathe in any way.
