Mouthguards: Frequently Asked Questions

Mouthguards are protective devices worn over the teeth and gums to prevent injuries during sports or teeth grinding. They come in various types, including stock mouthguards, boil-and-bite mouthguards, and custom-made mouthguards. Mouthguards cushion impacts, absorb shock, and distribute forces to reduce the risk of dental injuries, such as chipped or broken teeth, and soft tissue damage. They are commonly used in contact sports like football, boxing, and hockey, as well as activities like skateboarding and mountain biking. Properly fitted mouthguards provide a comfortable fit, allowing for normal breathing and speech while offering essential protection for the mouth and jaw.
