Custom- fitted mouth protectors are individually designed to protect the teeth & mouths of children and adults who play contact sports such as football, ice hockey, lacrosse, boxing, soccer, basketball, and even non-contact or recreational activities that might pose a risk of injury to the mouth would benefit from wearing a protective mouth guard.
Because accidents can happen during any physical activity, the advantage of using a mouth guard during sports is that it can help limit the risk of mouth-related injuries to your lips, tongue, and soft tissues of your mouth. Mouth guards also help you avoid chipped or broken teeth, nerve damage to a tooth, or even tooth loss.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASING A STOCK MOUTH GUARD
- Little to no adjustment
- Make breathing more difficult
- Provide little to no protection.
An effective mouth guard should be comfortable, resist tears, be durable, easy to clean, and should not restrict your breathing.
