Do I Need A Mouth Guard For Sports?
According to the Academy of Sports Dentistry, the best mouth guard (based on research) remains one that is custom designed and made by a dental professional with the athlete’s individual needs taken into account.
Sports mouth guards are excellent at deflecting the forces of an impact that would cause trauma, protecting the athlete’s bone and teeth. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry also recommends mouth guards to prevent injuries while performing sports.
