Mouth guards act as shock absorbers in the mouth to protect teeth from excessive force. Playing high-impact sports, injuries do happen and your teeth should be protected. Mouth guards also help protect your head and brain from concussions if the blow is onto the lower jaw. They can help prevent injuries to your jaw joints (TMJ) by supporting and cushioning when blunt forces hit your lower jaw.
At Sussex Smiles Dental Clinic, we can create a mouth guard that will be custom fitted to your teeth.
