Mouthguard Q&A

Sports Mouthguards

Do you or your child play contact sports? Dr. Brock Hyder offers custom-fit mouthguards for children and adults. He will work with you during each step of the process to ensure that you are receiving comfortable care.


Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about mouthguards below:

Do mouthguards protect teeth?

Yes, mouth guards ensure that teeth are not chipped, cracked, or broken due to injuries sustained during contact sports. Wearing a mouthguard can help prevent the need for restorative solutions in the future.

Can mouthguards prevent concussions?

Yes, mouth guards help absorb shock by stabilizing the head and neck. Mouthguards also limit movement when the jaw is hit.

How often should you change your mouthguard?

Mouthguards should be replaced every year to ensure that they conform to teeth. When mouth guards lose their thickness they can become less effective, so it is important to replace them.
