Dr. Fanous and his team at Caprock Oral Surgery encourage all of you athletes to protect your teeth and mouth while performing your optimal best!!  Certain sports and activities carry a high risk of falling or resulting in injuries that can impact your face. A mouthguard can help to protect your teeth and prevent them from injuring your lips or tongue.

It’s especially important to use a mouthguard if you’re involved in any of the following:
  • football
  • soccer
  • boxing
  • basketball
  • field hockey
  • ice hockey
  • gymnastics
  • skateboarding
  • in-line skating
  • cycling
  • volleyball
  • softball
  • wrestling
In most cases, either a stock mouthguard or a boil-and-bite mouthguard is a good choice for protection while you play sports. Stock mouthguards are the least expensive and may be a good option if you only need to wear one occasionally.


While slightly more expensive, boil-and-bite mouthguards offer a better fit, which helps them stay in place. If you participate in high-impact sports, this might be a better option for you.
