What are mouthguards and why are they important?

Mouthguards are a protective oral appliance that is ideal for contact sports such as soccer, football, basketball, hockey, snowboarding, or skateboarding. It may feel funny, but they protect your teeth and soft tissues from getting avulsed, or knocked out. They can also prevent more serious injuries, such as jaw fractures. There are different types of mouthguards, such as stock or over the counter mouthguards, or custom-made ones. Be sure to ask your dentist which is the right choice for you!
