Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Mouth Guards

What Do Dental Sports Mouthguards Do?

Mouth guards can prevent broken teeth, concussions, injuries to the lips, tongue, face and jaw. If properly fitted, it will stay in place while wearing it and allow you to talk and breathe easier.

In the past, mouth guards were made of leather or rubber. They were shaped like a tube with a hole in the middle for the nose and two holes on either side for the cheeks. That is because they were not designed to be worn during activity. Nowadays, they are made of plastic or other materials that will not break down during use and are more comfortable to wear during activities.

These mouth guards have been specifically designed to be worn during sporting activities such as hockey, football, baseball, basketball, soccer, and others. They provide protection against impact injuries such as tooth fractures and jaw fractures that can result from a blow or collision with another player while playing sports.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that mouth guards be worn during all heavy contact sports.
