A mouth guard is used by athletes of all ages to protect teeth from trauma during competitive and individual sporting activities. They are made of a variety of materials, some relatively flexible and others relatively rigid. Custom-made mouth guards deliver the greatest protection. Over-the-counter mouth guards are available in "boil and bite" versions, which are formed to the individual’s mouth, and "ready to wear" versions, which cannot be customized and offer the least protection.
The American Association of Orthodontists advocates the use of mouth guards by children and adults during organized and recreational sporting activities.
