Mouth Guards for Braces

Whether you play basketball, football, volleyball or even skateboard, it is important to protect yourself as well as others from your braces. A simple over-the-counter mouth guard is a convenient and easy way to do it. A common mouth guard is made of rubber or polyvinyl materials, although these preformed mouth guards may not provide as accurate a fit, it is often are more than enough to provide sufficient protection for many sports and leisure activities. Some places you can find mouth guards include Target, Dick’s Sporting Good as well as Walmart. The over the counter mouth guards are also inexpensive ranging from $9.99 to $24.99. If you are looking for something that is custom, you can ask your dentist about it, however, it is going to be a lot more expensive.



A sports mouth guard is a soft rubber or plastic appliances that is worn in the mouth to help prevent injures to the teeth and gums. Like a car seat belt it can help prevent injuries, a mouth guard can cushion an accidental blast to the face. The mouth guard will also help to prevent or minimize injury to the teeth, jaws, and gums.
