Protective mouth guards are highly effective in preventing oral injury when playing a contact sport. They are worn over the teeth, and their ingenious design provides both comfort and protection without interfering with the user’s normal speaking or breathing. Studies have proven that athletes who wear mouth guards are less likely to experience tooth wear, oral injury and jaw problems. Our practice is proud to offer custom-made mouth guards for both children and adults.
Ferrari Dental has provided protective mouth guards for athletes from a wide-variety of contact sports, including baseball, softball, basketball, wrestling, football, lacrosse, soccer and hockey. Athletes who participate in these sports face a high risk of oral injury and structural damage to the mouth. By using a mouth guard, these risks are greatly reduced. Mouth guards have also been shown to reduce the likelihood of concussions and lacerations to the tongue, cheeks and lips.
In addition to standard mouth guards, we also offer night guards for patients suffering from bruxism. This disorder refers to the habit of clenching and grinding one’s teeth while sleeping, and it can lead to excessive tooth wear, jaw discomfort, headaches and tooth fractures. By wearing a night guard, these unpleasant symptoms can be significantly reduced, or even eliminated.
