Why Should You Wear A Mouthguard?

Mouthguards cushion blows to the face and neck. A mouthguard should be part of every athlete's gear, no matter the sport. Even adults or weekend athletes need to protect their smile and protect themselves from concussions.

Do: Wear a mouthguard at all times when playing sports. Wear a mouthguard custom-fitted by your dentist, even if you wear bridges or braces.

Don't: Wear removable appliances like retainers when playing sports.

There are two types of mouthguards:

Custom-made: Designed by a dentist and made on a cast of your teeth. These cause very little interference with speaking or breathing. They provide the best protection and fit over braces and fixed bridges.  They are fabricated in the Tuxedo Dental Group on-site lab

Ready-made: Purchased at most sporting goods stores. They are the least expensive, the least effective, and least comfortable.
