A properly fitted mouth guard is an essential piece of athletic equipment for athletes who participate in contact sports and other physical activities. Mouth guards are protective devices worn over your top teeth to absorb the impact from blows to the face, hard falls, contact between players, and other sports-related accidents. If you have braces, crowns, bridges or other dental repairs, Dr. Safar recommends a mouth guard to protect them.
Mouth guards protect your teeth, gums, and tongue from trauma and accidents during sports and other physical activities. Common sports-related injuries include broken teeth, knocked out teeth, broken tooth roots, and lacerations of the lips, gums, cheeks or tongue. In some cases, mouth guards have been shown to help reduce the risk of more severe injuries, such as broken jawbones or concussions.
Mouth guards are required equipment in contact sports such as boxing, ice hockey, field hockey, football and lacrosse. However, doctors and dentists recommend the use of mouth guards in a variety of sports and physical activities such as gymnastics, bike riding, and skateboarding. Mouth guards are also recommended for children between the ages of seven and 11.
There are three types of mouth guards available to adults and children:
At Celebrity Smile, we also offer the ArmourBite® mouth guard from Under Armour®, a patented mouthpiece that increases airflow, strength, stamina, and focus. The ArmourBite® mouth guard features patented ArmourBite® Power Wedges™ to pivot your jaw forward when you run, lift, and train. Why? To reduce your body's production of performance-sapping cortisol, while also maximizing air intake to increase your endurance and improve your strength, speed, and reaction time.
Under Armour®’s patented T-Bar Grip Fit System custom-fits the mouth guard only on your lower teeth, which allows you to speak freely while it's in. Power, performance, and another game-changing innovation from Under Armour®. Learn more about the benefits of the ArmourBite® mouth guard and schedule an appointment with Dr. Safar.
If you suffer from nighttime bruxism (excessive grinding or clenching of the teeth during sleep), Dr. Safar may recommend a night guard. Night guards can be worn over the teeth at night to reduce the damage to your teeth caused by bruxism. Signs of bruxism include worn teeth, jaw pain, headaches, and cracked or broken teeth.
