If you play contact sports, mouth guards are a necessary piece of equipment. From football, soccer and basketball to hockey, lacrosse, wrestling and even baseball, if you play a sport where contact is possible, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. Here in Holmdel, NJ, Dr. Dipika Shah can provide you with a custom mouth guard to protect your jaw, cheeks, teeth, tongue and lips and more importantly your brain.
Mouth guards are essential for protecting your teeth and jaw against structural damage and your tongue and lips against lacerations. They have also been known to decrease the risk of concussions during sports.
While you can buy mouth guards in most sporting goods stores, you should be wary of these. They are ill-fitting and uncomfortable and they do not offer protection. If you want to protect your mouth during sports, a custom mouth guard from Dr. Shah offers the highest level of protection. Created specifically for you the mouth guard is made with a thin plastic that is hardened after being custom fit to the mould of your mouth. Its thinness allows you to breathe and talk easier, which is important when playing team sports.
