Frequently Asked Questions On Sports Mouth Guards At All Smiles Northwest

- What Does A Mouth Guard Do?

​​Also known as a sports guard or a mouth protector, a mouth guard is an oral appliance that fits over your teeth. When a mouth guard has been custom-fitted to your mouth by your dentist, it will provide you with effective protection against the risk of mouth trauma and lost teeth.

- Are Mouth Guards Uncomfortable To Wear?

If your mouth guard has been custom-fitted, it should be comfortable for you to wear while you’re participating in athletic activities. Your mouth guard will not interfere with your speaking or breathing normally, and it will be easy for you to keep clean.

- How Common Are Sports-Related Oral Injuries?

According to the American Dental Association, as many as one-third of all oral injuries are sustained during sports. Some common injuries that a mouth guard can effectively protect you from include chipped teeth, jaw fractures, cut or bruised lips, shattered crowns, and even concussions and neck injuries.

- What Sports Should I Wear A Mouth Guard For?

You should wear a mouth guard during any activities that might increase your risk of a mouth injury. In particular, you should always wear a mouth guard for baseball, basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, rugby, soccer, water polo, and wrestling.

- Are Custom-Fitted Mouth Guards Better Than Store-Bought Mouth Guards?

A store-bought mouth guard often won’t be a precise fit for your mouth, which will make it uncomfortable to wear and may detract from its effectiveness. When you opt for a custom mouth guard, your dentist will take a cast of your teeth and use it to construct a unique device that is designed just for your purposes.
