Sports mouth guards are devices worn during sporting activities that involve falls, body contact and flying equipment i.e. football, baseball, hockey, soccer etc.
Mouth guards typically cover the top teeth to protect against broken teeth and trauma to the lips. If you wear braces, a mouth guard may also be suggested for the lower teeth as well. Mouth guards should be replaced each season, as they can alter in shape. Especially in children and adolescents as their mouth continues to grow and change.
