Mouthguard FAQs

Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about mouth guards below:

Do mouth guards protect teeth?

Yes, mouth guards ensure that teeth are not chipped, cracked, or broken due to injuries sustained during contact sports. Wearing a mouth guard can help prevent the need for restorative solutions in the future.

Can mouth guards prevent concussions?

Yes, mouth guards help absorb shock by stabilizing the head and neck. Mouth guards also limit movement when the jaw is hit.

How often should you change your mouth guard?

Mouth guards should be replaced every season, or every six months. When mouth guards lose their thickness they can become less effective, so it is important to replace them.
