If you ever take part in any dangerous sports or other activities that can put your oral health at risk, make sure you are wearing protective gear such as mouth guards. For a better understanding of the basics of mouth guards, listed below are some important facts to take into account:

– There are different varieties of mouth guards including custom bite guards, boil and bite guards, and one size fits all guards, the latter of which is the only one that will not be modified to your specific bite impression.
– Mouth guards prevent oral accidents and injuries from severely debilitating your smile, including dental damage and tooth loss.
– Always take care of your mouthguards so they are not bent out of shape or are severely contaminated with bacteria.
– If you are participating in a contact sport or similar high-risk activity, it is imperative to wear the necessary safety equipment, such as mouth guards, to protect your oral health.
