A mouth guard protects the teeth and lips against injuries. Mainly, it reduces the forces that cause brain concussion that occur when practicing contact sports.
Why choose a custom made model?
When the dentist makes this device from a precise impression of your mouth, it is self-evident to say that the adaptation and comfort are highly improved. The evenness and thickness of the protective material is sufficiant in all areas and brings a higher level of protection than any other mouth guard you could find in free sale.
What is the difference of the mouth guard with the bite plate or the occusal plate?
The occlusal plate is also used to protect the teeth, but is made differently with stiffer material. It prevents your brain from telling your jaws to tighten themselves, which we call “bruxism”. This plate is mostly worn at night time.
