Your dentist, Dr. Joseph Goodman, strongly encourages you to wear a mouthguard each time you participate in high-contact sports and activities. This can help you maintain a top-notch smile and oral health while you’re active. To help you better understand mouthguards in Beverly Hills, California, our dentist is happy to tell you all about the appliance by sharing the following mouthguard facts with you:

-A mouthguard can help you prevent oral injuries, like knocked-out, broken and fractured teeth as well as damaged gums, when you suffer a blow to the face. This is possible because it can absorb the force when an elbow, ball, knee or other hard object hits your mouth.

-You can protect your smile with one of many mouthguards. One option is the stock mouthguard, which is premade and ready to wear. Another option is the boil-and-bite mouthguard, which needs to be formed at home. The last option is a customized mouthguard, which is an appliance your dentist makes just for you.

-A mouthguard can help you when you’re doing many things, like boxing, playing basketball, playing football, wrestling, playing rugby, participating in karate, snowboarding, playing soccer and more.
