Mouthguard FAQs

Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about sports mouthguards below:

What are the benefits of wearing a mouthguard?

Sports mouthguards cushion any hits made to the face which protects teeth from being cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged. Mouthguards also absorb shock, reducing the risk of concussions. Wearing a mouthguard helps to ensure that you or your child will not need restorative treatment for missing or damaged teeth.

How long do mouthguards last?

You should replace your mouthguard once every year to make sure that it continues to conform to and protect your teeth.

How do you clean a sports mouthguard?

You can wash your mouthguard with antibacterial soap and water. You may also want to clean your mouthguard with a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste. Cleaning your mouthguard regularly protects against bacteria growth.
