Mouthguards are dental appliances that are worn over teeth and serve to protect the athlete from concussion and teeth from injury during sports.
There are three types of mouthguards: stock mouth protectors, boil and bite mouth protectors and custom fitted mouth protectors. Dr. Walters only makes custom mouthguards.
Mouthguards can be used by anyone; especially those who play contact sports such as boxing, ice hockey, basketball, and field hockey.
A custom mouthguard works best because they are individually designed; according to your dentist’s guidelines and instructions. Custom-fitted mouth protectors are made from an impression made of your teeth, providing greater comfort and protection as well as easy breathing and speaking.
