By using a sport mouth guard, "sport dentistry" corrects the
posture of a sport player and produces moderate occlusion, and improves
the environment in the mouth. The use of sport mouth guard demonstrates
maximum sport capability, avoiding the risk of the athletic injury.
Although some mouth guards are sold in the sporting goods stores, those mouth guards don’t fit teeth arch moderately, resulting in shift from the arch or removal out of the mouth. The use of these mouth guards is also difficult to pronounce and disturbs functioning firmly at a pinch in a sport game.
The mouth guard which doesn't have good occlusal correction may injure the temporo-mandibular joint and behave wrongly to cause lack of concentration during sport game. The prefabricated mouth guards are thin, and sometime make holes on occlusal surface as compared to the custom-made mouth guard. The custom-made mouth guard has functions of guard ten times more than prefabricated mouth guard sold at sport goods shops.
