To avoid injuries to your mouth while you're playing sports, talk to Dr. Bui about getting an athletic mouthguard made just for you.

What is a mouthguard?

A mouthguard is a flexible appliance that is worn during athletic and recreational activities to prevent injuries to your mouth and face, such as split lips, broken teeth, and jaw fractures.

When should I wear a mouthguard?

It is advisable to wear a mouthguard any time there is a strong chance to your head making contact with other participants or hard surfaces. Mouthguards should be worn when participating in activities such as basketball, softball, football, wrestling, soccer, lacrosse, rugby, hockey, martial arts, and skateboarding.

There are different types of mouthguards but when it comes to injury prevention, a custom-made mouthguard is your best option. This type of mouthguard made from a model of your teeth offers the best protection, fit and comfort level.
