A mouth guard is a flexible custom fitted device worn over teeth during athletic and recreational activities to protect them from damage. Mouth guards can buffer damage to the teeth from blows and physical contact. Mouth guard can also act as a barrier between teeth and the cheeks, between the lips and tongue, thereby limiting the risk of soft tissue damage. A good-fitting mouth guard may be especially important if you wear braces, have fixed anterior bridgework or just want to protect your teeth/smile from potential trauma.
