What are Mouth Guards?

Mouth guards or sports guards are devices worn on the teeth to protect them from potential impact when engaging in contact sports such as football, boxing, hockey, basketball and soccer, to name a few. They are often made of rubber or any pliant material that can absorb the force of a blow in the face or head.

Mouth guards protect against broken teeth, cut lips and other damage to the mouth. Aside from athletes, others who may be recommended by dentists to wear mouth guards are orthodontic patients who wear braces or other non-removable dental appliance.
