About Mouth Guards
Mouth guards that are custom built by a dentist, like our dentists in Lincoln Park, MI, can be used to shield the teeth and gums while enjoying contact sports (i.e. hockey and football) or other activities that often involve falling or injury (i.e. biking and skating). In addition to defending the jaw, teeth, and gums, using a mouth guards has also been proven to boost athletic performance by lowering stress, which diminishes the release of hormones that can restrict endurance, strength, and reaction time. Even though generic mouth guards are priced lower, custom built mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Lincoln Park are created from superior quality ingredients, fit more snuggly, last longer, and give more reliable protection, which can prevent high-priced dental services.
