Mouth guards help protect the teeth and the soft tissue of the mouth–tongue, cheeks, gums–from injury during activity that may result in impact (i.e. during sports). Compared to an over-the-counter mouthguard, a custom mouthguard fabricated by your dentist will be significantly more form fitting, requiring less material and resulting in greater comfort.
If you participate in sports, our dentists can evaluate whether or not you are a good candidate for a custom mouth guard. In order to fabricate a custom mouthguard, we need only to take an easy impression of your upper teeth.
