A mouthguard (also known as a mouth protector, mouth piece, gumshield, gumguard or nightguard) is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums. Mouthguards are most often used to prevent injury in contact sports.
Custom mouth guards help to:
- Prevent oral damage
- Protect against facial injuries
- Provide complete comfort for athletes
- Eliminate hundreds of hours in the dental chair
- Properly fit in the mouth, making it easier to breathe
