About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom-made by a dentist, like our dentists in Northville, MI, can be used to protect the teeth during contact sports (i.e. football and hockey) or activities that may involve falling (i.e. skateboarding and biking). In addition to protecting the teeth, gums, and jaw, using a mouth guards has also been proven to help athletic performance by reducing stress, which minimizes the release of hormones that can limit strength, endurance, and reaction time. While over-the-counter mouth guards are less expensive, custom mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Northville are made from higher quality materials, fit more comfortably, last longer, and offer better protection, which can prevent costly dental procedures.
