About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom-made by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Fairlawn, OH, may be used to protect the teeth during contact sports (i.e. football and hockey) or activities that may have a high risk of falling (i.e. skateboarding and biking). In addition to protecting the teeth, gums, and jaw, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to help athletic performance by reducing stress, which minimizes the production of hormones that can limit strength, endurance, and reaction time. While over-the-counter mouth guards are less expensive, custom mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Fairlawn are made from higher quality materials, fit more comfortably, last for a longer time, and offer better protection, which can prevent costly dental procedures.
