Sports Mouth Guards for Adults
Every year millions of cases of dental and facial injuries occur as the result of sport-related trauma.
While all sports have some risk of oral injury, it is especially prevalent in recreational activities that involve frequent body contact with other players or the ground, as well as the possibility of being struck by other objects such as, balls, bats, or sticks.

One way to significantly reduce the risk of damage to your teeth, cheeks, lips, tongue, face, or jaw as the result of a sports-related injury is to wear a mouthguard.
A mouthguard is a removable appliance made of a sturdy plastic that sits comfortably over your teeth.
Typically, mouthguards are designed to cover just the top teeth but may also be fabricated to include the lower teeth as well depending on your particular situation.
Individuals who wear braces or have some types of dental work may require a specific type of mouthguard that provides more coverage.
