specially fabricated mouth guard can be made for your teeth. This guard fits
over the upper or lower teeth to prevent broken or chipped teeth due to tooth-to-tooth
contact. It is appropriate for "non-contact" sports such as baseball,
basketball, soccer, and gymnastics, where incidental contact with solid objects
and other participants is common.
size and secure fit of a custom lab created mouth guard provides these advantages:
Clearer speech - when
communication with teammates is important
More comfortable fit
- so it's less distracting
Less restricted breathing
- for improved performance
injuries in non-contact sports are primarily due to tooth-to-tooth contact.
Being accidentally bumped in the chin with an elbow is not what directly causes
most dental injuries. It's the collision of the lower teeth with the upper
teeth after the bump that causes the damage. A mouth guard worn on the upper
or lower teeth cushions the blow to protect both the upper and lower teeth.
