A mouth guard is an essential piece of equipment for any contact sport. Athletes of all ages should be outfitted with mouth guards to protect their teeth from injury. They are recommended for football, hockey, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, wrestling, boxing, martial arts, or any sport or activity in which contact is a possibility.
While generic mouth guards are available in sporting goods stores, a custom mouth guard that is sure to fit correctly and protect from injury can only be provided by a dentist. A custom mouth guard is created to provide optimal comfort and protection for each individual patient's mouth.
