Mouth guards can serve several purposes. We can make sports guards that actually fit and are far more comfortable and protective against dental injury or concussion than the old “boil and bite” guard you get at the drug store. We highly encourage our young athletes to use a custom made mouth guard for there safety.Other types of mouth guards are used for diagnosis and treatment of bite problems. It is critical that these appliances are designed, fabricated, and adjusted correctly or they can cause more harm than good. Dr. Forgosh has extensive training and experience using these occlusal splints to help his patients find comfort and stability.
