What is a Mouth Guard?
If you or your kid plays a sport, such as football, soccer, boxing, baseball, hockey, or wrestling, Dr. Jenny Kye highly suggests a custom mouth guard to protect your gums, teeth, and jaw. Unlike store-bought generic mouth guards, customized mouth guards from Chang & Rothkopf Dental will be molded and adjusted for you, making it even more effective and comfortable. If you want to decrease the possibility of harm to your mouth, we encourage you to contact Chang & Rothkopf Dental in Washington, D.C., to find out more about custom-made mouth guards.
Am I a Candidate for a Mouth Guard?
Mouth guards are helpful if you or your child participates in a sport that involves a high risk of injury or frequent contact. Many of our patients participate in football, volleyball, martial arts, soccer, softball, hockey, wrestling, and other contact sports. A mouth guard can be particularly beneficial if you have dental restorations or braces because these can easily cut your gums and the soft tissues lining your mouth. Mouth guards also have been demonstrated to help athletes in sports without contact, including jogging, yoga, and weight training, by decreasing strain on the jawbone. Since a custom mouth guard is made especially for your needs, it typically fits better and lasts longer compared to stock or boil and bite mouth protectors available at sporting goods shops.
