Sports Mouth Guards for All Ages
Custom-Fitted for Enhanced Protection and Comfort
Using mouth guards during sporting activities can help prevent tooth, mouth and jaw injuries in athletes and players of all ages. In certain types of sports, such as weightlifting, they can also help enhance performance. Aside from preventing painful injuries, investing in this protective oral appliance is also more cost-effective than paying for treatment. While there are many over-the-counter solutions available, custom-made dental mouth guards offer optimal protection and comfort.
Does your child play hockey, baseball or train in martial arts? Research shows that all sports—from football, rugby, hockey, boxing and martial arts to basketball, baseball, skateboarding, skiing and snowboarding—carry a high risk of orofacial injury. Schedule a consultation at Floss Family Dentistry to keep your child’s mouth and teeth safe. We have helped hundreds of children and adults in the Morgan Hill area improve performance and maintain a healthy smile with our high quality sports mouth guards.
How do Mouth Guards Work?
Sports mouth guards are like the airbags in your car. They act as a shock absorber to protect the teeth and jaws from excessive force. While these oral appliances generally cover upper teeth, your dentist can make a mouth guard for the lower teeth as well, especially if you wear braces or another fixed dental appliance on the lower jaw.
Benefits of Sports Mouth Guards Made by Your Dentist
Here are the key benefits of using a mouth guard specially designed by your dentist:
- Helps absorb and diffuse the effect of a hit to your face which could cause injury to the jaw or mouth
- Shields lips, tongue, cheeks and gums from laceration
- Acts as a shock-absorber in the event of a blow to your lower jaw which may help to shield your brain from a concussion
- Protects your jaw joints from dislocation
- May help prevent jaw fracture by acting as a cushion between the top and bottom jaws
- Enhances performance and confidence by improving focus and concentration, and consequently speeding up reaction time
