Types of mouthguards:
There are different types of mouth guards; ready-made, individually adapted and individually made.
Numerous scientific studies have shown that wearing an individual mouthguard significantly reduces the degree of intraoral injuries and protects against injuries in the area of the temporomandibular joint and, to a certain extent, against craniocerebral trauma.
The function of the mouth guard:
From a dental point of view, a professionally made mouth guard should absorb and distribute impact energy. It must have a certain elasticity, be neutral in taste and smell, and suitable for maintaining hygiene.
The mouth guard is generally made for the upper jaw (except for progenia). Difficulties in terms of communication, breathing and appearance when wearing it can be reduced with a professionally made mouthguard.
