A mouthguard does exactly as it seems: it guards your mouth. More specifically, mouthguards act as a cushion to protect your teeth, tongue, gums, lips, and cheeks from impacts to the face. While mouthguards can be purchased at stores, it’s recommended to visit your dentist for the most effective, best-fitting, more comfortable, and custom-fitted mouthguards. Furthermore, mouthguards from the dentist have been proven to be much better at preventing concussions and traumatic brain injuries and less likely to impede breathing and speech than over-the-counter mouthguards.
