Our dentist, Dr. Michael Kim, encourages you to wear a mouthguard when you participate in high-contact sports and activities. To be an overachiever, you can even wear one when you do things that aren’t as dangerous for your smile but can still result in oral injury, like sledding, snowboarding, skiing, and more.
Mouthguards are protective devices that are made for the mouth. They cover the teeth and gums and prevent as well as reduce the chance of injury to the teeth, arches, gums, and lips. They can even help protect your tongue. They are strong and reliable appliances that can cushion a blow to the face. Fortunately, there are many different types of mouthguards available, like stock, boil-and-bite, and custom-made mouthguards. You can choose the guard that is right for you. You can purchase stock and boil-and-bite guards at sporting goods stores and you can purchase a custom-made mouthguard at your dental office. To find out which guard can help you the most, ask our dental team now!
