If you participate in basketball, boxing, hockey, football, gymnastics, martial arts, rugby, track and field or any other activity that may lead to injury to your teeth, a mouthguard is highly recommended.

There are three types: pre-made, boil and bite mouthguard and custom-fit. Make sure it fits properly and is made from a wear and tear resistant material.

Some instructions for care:

  • When not wearing, keep in a case
  • Gently clean with a brush.
  • Ensure it fits properly and bring it with you to your dental check up. Your dentist may recommend a new one if it doesn’t fit well anymore.
