Protective Mouth Guards

Mouth guards are an essential piece of equipment in contact sports.  They should be worn by athletes of all ages who participate in sports such as:

  • Football (and Rugby)
  • Hockey
  • Lacrosse
  • Wrestling
  • Basketball
  • Baseball/Softball
  • Soccer
  • Martial Arts
  • …any sport where contact is a possibility.

Wearing a mouth guard helps prevent against structural damage to teeth and jaw and also helps prevent injuries such as lacerations to cheeks, tongue, and lips.  Mouth guards have also been shown to help decrease the risk of concussions.

Mouth guards are available in most any sporting goods store, but you should be careful when purchasing a mouth guard.  At Comfort Dental we do not recommend those types of guards because they do not offer the best level of protection.  They are also usually ill-fitting and uncomfortable.  

For the highest level of comfort and protection, you should schedule and appointment for a custom mouth guard fitting.  A custom mouth guard is created specifically for the optimal protection of YOUR mouth.  It is created with thin plastic that is hardened to protect your teeth.  The thinness of the custom mouth guard allows for easy breathing and also allows for easy communication (especially important for you star quarterbacks calling out the signals).  

See your dentist today for a custom mouth guard to protect your teeth and ensure that you maintain the highest level of performance on the field, court, rink or gym. At Comfort Dental, we also recommend mouth guards for any intense activity you may engage in, or any activity that brings you stress. 

If your stress is in the day time, ask about a DayGuard.
