Oral Health Outlines: Mouth Guards

Posted .

One of the key foundations of a healthy smile is making sure that you keep your smile safe. If you are at risk for accidents and injuries due to high-risk activities such contact sports, it is important to wear protective gear. When you want to protect your smile, you include mouth guard as part of your equipment.

Are you aware of the importance that mouth guards can provide? Mouth guards are highly effective oral appliances that can add an additional layer of protection for your teeth and gums. To determine which products are best for you, speak with your dentist to see if a custom-made mouth guard may be better for your oral health care needs.

You can visit a local store and pick out a stock mouth guard that is pre-formed and ready-to-wear. However, it will not precisely fit your dental profile as well as a customized mouth guard. Another option is a boil and bite mouth guard, which is and boiled to soften it. You then bite down on it so that it can conform to the shape of your teeth. To determine which mouth guard works best for you, visit your dentist.
