With all of South Jersey’s spring sports right around the corner, we want to fill you in on what we think is the most important piece of equipment—a mouthguard!

Here at Serenity Smile Designs in local Egg Harbor Township, we can make custom mouth guards made specifically for you. They fit well and offer the best protection for your smile. Who should wear a sports mouthguard? Anyone who participates in a sport that carries a significant risk of injury should wear a mouth protector (this includes: hockey, football, baseball, soccer, gymnastics, volleyball, etc.).

Why? Using a mouthguard during any activity could prevent a blow to the face or mouth. A properly fitted mouthguard can help prevent broken teeth and injuries to the lips, tongue, face or jaw. It stays in place while you wear it, so you can still talk and breathe easily. Mouth protectors, which typically cover the upper teeth, minimize the risk of broken teeth and injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth. If you wear braces or another fixed dental appliance on your lower jaw, Dr. Erik Mendelsohn may suggest a mouth protector for these teeth as well.

Please Call Serenity Smile Designs today to make an appointment for your custom made mouthguard! (609) 646-1989.
