Abstract

The greatest use of mouth protectors is the reduction of injuries in sports-related activities.85 However, mouth protectors are used with increasing frequency in other areas of therapeutic and preventive dentistry and medicine. Although the full scope of the use of custom mouth protectors has not yet been realized, this article reviewed the most common current uses. Health professionals should familiarize themselves with this treatment modality because the simplicity and cost of the custom mouth protector makes its use applicable to a wide range of patients for the potential preservation of oral structures.
