At the dental office of Ralph W. Besho, DMD, PA, we understand how important it is for athletes to protect their teeth from sports-related injuries. That is why we offer high-quality, custom-fitted mouth guards for adults and children in East Brunswick.
Also called mouth protectors and sports guards, mouth guards are dental appliances worn over the teeth while playing sports or engaging in physical activities. Made for durable and tear-resistant material, mouth guards absorb the force from blows to the face, contact between players, hard falls and other accidents. Our dentist also recommends wearing mouth guards if you have braces, crowns, bridges or other fragile dental work.
Athletes wear mouth guards to prevent sports-related injuries to their mouths, lips and teeth. Common injuries include cracked teeth, broken teeth, tooth root fracture or lacerations on your lips or inside of your cheeks. Mouth guards have also been known to reduce the chance of serious injuries, such as knocked out teeth, broken jaws and concussions.
