Athletes participating in any contact sport are advised to wear some kind of mouth protection, and if you and your family are active in sports we can give you that protection. A mouth guard helps prevent damage to the teeth and jaw, and injuries to the cheeks, tongue, and lips. Dr. Lis Bradley, DDS in Brentwood, TN fits adults and children with custom mouth guards. This is an easy safety precaution to take, and you can go right back to playing your best!
Most sporting goods stores carry a small selection of generic mouth guards. These are often uncomfortable, leading child and teenage athletes in particular to not wear the protection at all. A bulky mouth guard can even interrupt breathing and speaking. Have your dentist perform a custom mouth guard fitting and get a mouth guard made of thin, hard plastic that protects your teeth and still fits comfortably. Custom mouth guards can also be fit over braces, preventing brackets from rubbing the inside of the mouth.
