About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom built by a dental professional, such as our dentists in Willoughby, OH, may be used to shield the teeth and gums while enjoying contact sports (i.e. football and rugby) or other activities that often have a high risk of falling or injury (i.e. biking and skating). In addition to defending the jaw, teeth, and gums, wearing a mouth guards has also been shown to boost athletic performance by lowering stress, which diminishes the production of hormones that can restrict endurance, reaction time, and strength. Even though generic mouth guards are priced lower, custom built mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Willoughby are created from superior quality ingredients, fit more snuggly, last for a longer time, and give more reliable protection, which can prevent high-priced dental services.
