Summer is here and with it comes a season of fun in the sun. This could mean being more active in sports and other recreational activities where accidents could easily happen. That is why having a mouthguard is ideal, so you can avoid accidents that are both painful and costly. Here at our practice in Aloha, Oregon, we are proud to talk to you about mouth guards and how they can protect your smile this summer.

Mouth guards work by protecting your teeth and gums from accidental injury. A mouth guard is an important part of your recreation or sports attire and should be worn for your oral health protection. High-impact sports often require one for your safety, however skateboarding, and other recreational activities still need a mouth guard too in case of injury.

There are many different kinds of mouth guards you can choose from. Your dentist, Dr. [doctor_ name], can custom-make a mouth guard specifically for your smile. These are formed for your unique smile and needs. Other choices include boil and bite guards or stock mouth guards, which can be found at many sports stores.
