Quick Guide to Choosing the Right Mouthguard

Posted on . Filed under: Facial Injuries, Fort Lauderdale Oral Facial Surgery

Ideally, a mouthguard should be by turns sturdy to protect your mouth and lightweight to help you easily breathe. There are various types of mouthguards out there — from the mass-produced models to the custom-fabricated guards by dental professionals. So what exactly should you look for in a mouthguard? Your mouthguard requirements could vary depending on the sport or activity you’re presently engaged.

By and large, your mouthguard should:

  • have the right fit and will not most likely throw off a bite and misalign the jaw
  • should cover both the upper and lower parts of your mouth
  • strong & lightweight
  • easy to clean
