A mouthguard is a U-shaped piece of plastic which fits between and protects the upper and lower teeth as well as your jaw. For sports like boxing, ice hockey, field hockey, lacrosse, and football, mouthguards are generally required. Dr. Locker highly recommends the use of athletic mouthguards to protect your teeth in any sport or activity where dental injury is even a possibility. Mouthguards made by a dentist are made of superior materials and create a better fit for maximum protection. We make customized molded athletic mouthguards right here at Gentle Family Dentistry.
No matter what level you play, be sure to play it safe when it comes to protecting your teeth. Use our online form to request an appointment, or call 814-693-6777, and get your custom mouthguards made before your next practice or game.
