Athletic Mouth Guards

Athletic Mouthguard IN HIALEAH, FL

Athletic mouthguards, also known as sports mouthguards or mouth protectors, are custom-fitted devices worn over the teeth and gums to protect the mouth and teeth during sports activities. They are typically made of durable materials such as silicone and are designed to absorb shock and protect the teeth from impact.

Who are the candidates?

Athletic mouthguards are recommended for anyone who participates in sports activities, especially those that involve contact with other players or equipment, such as football, hockey, basketball, soccer, and boxing. They are also recommended for non-contact sports such as gymnastics, skateboarding, and biking, where falls and impacts can occur.
Mouthguards can help prevent a wide range of dental injuries, including broken teeth, chipped teeth, and damage to the soft tissues of the mouth, such as the lips, cheeks, and tongue. They can also help prevent more serious injuries such as concussions, by reducing the impact of blows to the head and jaw.
It is important to choose a properly fitted mouthguard that is appropriate for the specific sport being played. Custom-fitted mouthguards, which are made by our dentist in Hialeah, FL, offer the best protection and comfort, as they are specifically designed to fit the individual’s teeth and mouth shape.
