Mouth Guards

Imagine what it would be like if you suddenly lost one or two of your front teeth. Smiling, talking, eating-
everything would suddenly be affected.

Mouthguards, also called mouth protectors, help cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of
broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face or jaw. They typically cover the upper teeth and are
a great way to protect the soft tissues of your tongue, lips and cheek lining. Knowing how to prevent
injuries like these is especially important if you participate in organized sports or other recreational
activities.

When it comes to protecting your mouth, a mouthguard is an essential piece of athletic gear that
should be part of your standard equipment from an early age. In fact, studies show that athletes are
60 times more likely to suffer harm to the teeth if they’re not wearing a mouthguard. While collision
and contact sports, such as boxing, are higher-risk sports for the mouth, you can experience a dental
injury in non-contact activities too, such as gymnastics and skating.
