Playing sports and getting involved in various activities is a lot of fun. However, you also need to be sure that you are protecting your mouth.
A sports mouth guard is made from EVA, also known as Ethylene Vinyl Acetate. It’s tough and can be moulded to fit over your teeth and gums.
It is worn during rough and tumble activities as a way of protecting your mouth. This includes your teeth, lips, tongue, and cheeks.
It’s hard to anticipate what could happen on and off the field. If you suffer a blow to your mouth or jaw, the mouth guard offers cushion. This cushion can often prevent injury to your jaw, neck, and even brain. It’s also the protection needed so you don’t bite into your cheek or lose a tooth after a fall, tackle, or blow to the face.
If you are involved in sports (or even hobbies) where your teeth are in danger, it’s important to have a dentist create a mouth guard fit specifically to your mouth. It all sorts with a special impression. Moulds are made of your upper and lower teeth. From there, we sent the moulds to a laboratory where a custom mouth guard is made.
If you are a little concerned about your mouth getting injured, don’t wait another minute.
