Mouth guards, also known as sports guards or mouth protectors, are recommended for any individual who participates in a sport or physical activity. Basketball, football, martial arts, bicycling, lacrosse, and gymnastics are just some examples of physical activities that have the potential for injury to the mouth and jaw. Mouth guards can greatly reduce the risk of these types of injuries. We are happy to provide custom-fit mouth guards for optimum comfort and protection.
Wondering how to properly care for yours? These simple tips will help extend the life of your mouth guard:
- After use, wash with mild soap and warm (not hot) water
- Store in a container that has ventilation holes to allow the appliance to completely dry
- Do not expose to extreme hot or cold temperatures
- Do not bend
- Remember to bring it with you to your routine check ups
