Mouth Guards

For children and adults who participate in sports or other physical activities, wearing a protective mouth guard is imperative when it comes to preventing oral injuries to the teeth, tongue, jaw and face.

There are several types of mouth guards available.

Stock mouth guards are inexpensive and come ready to wear; however, they don’t tend to fit very well and they are bulky, making it difficult to breathe and talk.

Boil and bite mouth guards can also be bought at many sporting goods stores and are boiled, then inserted in the mouth to adapt to the shape of your mouth. These usually fit better than a stock guard; but are still not ideal when it comes to speaking or breathing.

The professionals at the office of Dr. Aaron Elkowitz highly recommend the use of custom-fit mouth guards. These are made from an impression of your teeth with top-quality materials. They allow you to breathe and speak normally and offer the best protection.

Night mouth guards are an important option for those who grind or clench their teeth while sleeping, a condition known as bruxism. Left untreated, this condition can cause damage to your teeth along with jaw pain and headaches.
