About Mouth Guards@headingTag>
Mouth guards that are made-to-order by a dentist, like our dentists in Novi, MI, can be used to defend the mouth while playing contact sports (i.e. football and rugby) or other sports that can involve injury (i.e. biking and skateboarding). In addition to shielding the teeth, jaw, and gums, using a mouth guards has also been proven to improve athletic performance by decreasing stress, which lessens the release of hormones that can constrain endurance, reaction time, and strength. Although store-bought mouth guards are cheaper, custom-made mouth guards from our dentists at DentalWorks - Novi Twelve Oaks are crafted from better quality supplies, fit more securely, last longer, and provide more protection, which can prevent expensive dental treatments.
