The Importance of Mouth Guards
A mouth guard is a mouth appliance that aids in the prevention of mouth injuries to the teeth, gums, and mouth area. It is usually made out of plastic or laminate, and it is worn during activities and playing sports. An athlete is prone to getting mouth injuries without the use of a mouth guard. It is very common to get broken or chipped teeth, cheek and lip injuries, fractured dental work (such as; fractured implants, crowns or bridgework), and damaged roots of teeth.
