Why would anybody want a mouth guard or need a mouth guard? Essentially, when you're playing a contact sport, the purpose of a mouth guard is to prevent your teeth from coming together forcefully during body contact.
Many people mistakenly believe that a mouth guard is primarily for preventing teeth from chipping, but in the context of contact sports, its main purpose is concussion prevention. In our office, we use a product called Proform, which is widely used in professional sports to this day. If you have any questions about mouth guards, please don't hesitate to contact our office.
