As the holiday season begins to present itself, now is the perfect opportunity to give the gift of a happy and healthy smile. To keep your smile safe for numerous years to come, consider mouth guards. Mouth guards work as a form of dental prosthetic to protect your teeth and provide added comfort and security against dental damage and trauma.

If you wish to have a mouth guard that can keep your smile safe, it is important to make sure you’re taking care of your mouth guard yourself. This includes cleaning it regularly and keeping it safe from moisture buildup and family pets. Furthermore, if your mouth guard ever feels like it’s not fitting correctly, or showing signs of wear, visit your dentist for a replacement.

Selecting your mouth guard can be a difficult task. However, it is often advised that you seek out mouth guards that are designed to fit your exact dental profile. Although stock mouth guards are preformed and ready to wear, they can be bulky, make breathing difficult, and will not provide the tightest fit. For a customized mouth guard, visit your dentist.
