Having healthy teeth is very important. You may spend a lot of time brushing and flossing, and even bleaching your teeth so that you can ensure that you have the best smile possible. While you may be doing all that you can to keep your teeth healthy and white, it is also important to make sure that your teeth are protected and strong.
Protecting Your Teeth
Playing sports while beneficial for your health may not always be the best thing for your teeth. Some sports, like contact sports, can actually do a lot of harm to your teeth. In order to protect your teeth from the damage done by contact sports you may want to use a mouth guard.
There are different types of mouth guards that are available. There are some types of mouth guards that you can buy at your local sporting goods store. Sporting goods stores usually have stock mouth guards which are made of a bulky material and can make it difficult to breath or even speak. They also have a type of mouth guard that you can boil and bite into them in order to get them the shape of your teeth.
Custom Mouth Guards
The best type of mouth guard is the kind that is custom made to fit your teeth. These types of mouth guards can be made by your dentist to properly fit your teeth while providing the best protection available.
