Our experienced dentist provides custom athletic mouth guards in Hacienda Heights, California, to protect your teeth and smile. We recommend that you wear a sports mouth guard whenever you participate in a recreational athletic activity or a high-contact sport.
Athletic mouth guards are designed to fit over your teeth and protect your smile from injury. They work to prevent damage to your teeth, tongue, lips, cheeks, gums, jaw and neck. They are highly beneficial to anyone who participates in recreational athletics and are often a required piece of gear for those who play contact sports such as wrestling, football, hockey, rugby, soccer, basketball, baseball or boxing.
While you can purchase generic mouth guards at most sporting goods stores, they will not provide as much protection as a custom mouth guard. “Stock” and “bite and boil” mouth guards are not customized to your mouth and will not provide as comprehensive of protection as a custom mouth guard. Some generic mouth guards may also hinder your ability to breathe easily while playing. Custom mouth guards are specifically designed to fit your mouth perfectly and provide the maximum amount of protection possible.
