Mouth Guards

Mouth guards will protect teeth from damage
Mouth guards have become an essential piece of equipment during any type of sporting event or recreational activity for athletes young and old. A protective mouth guard should be worn by any athlete who participates in a contact sport, or a recreational activity where falls are inevitable.

If your son, daughter, spouse or significant other is participating in a sport where collisions and falls are common, a mouth guard should be worn to protect the mouth, teeth and gums.

When a collision or an awkward fall occurs, a mouth guard will help prevent structural damage to the teeth and jaw, and also prevent other injuries such as lacerations to your cheeks, tongue, and lips. Mouth guards have also been shown to help decrease the effects of a concussion.

Be aware when purchasing a mouth guard at a sporting goods store or a pharmacy that generic mouth guards do not offer the best level of protection. They can also be uncomfortable and difficult to fit.

Dentist of Lake Mary can create a custom-fit mouth guard for your child, or anyone else for that matter, that will provide the best level of protection and comfort. A custom mouth guard is created from a thin plastic that is hardened to protect the teeth. The custom profile allows for easy breathing and communication.

Call Dentist of Lake Mary today at (407) 413-9000 to make an appointment to have the athlete or athletes in your family fitted for a custom mouth guard.
