About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are made-to-order by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Durham, NC, may be used to defend the mouth while playing contact sports (i.e. hockey and football) or other sports that can have a high risk of injury (i.e. biking and skateboarding). In addition to shielding the teeth, jaw, and gums, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to improve athletic performance by decreasing stress, which lessens the production of hormones that can constrain endurance, strength, and reaction time. Although store-bought mouth guards are cheaper, custom-made mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Durham are crafted from better quality supplies, fit more securely, last for a longer time, and provide more protection, which can prevent expensive dental treatments.
