Proper fit of a sports mouthguard or performance enhancing mouth wear is based on craniofacial neurometabolic physiology, which is how the relationship of the jaws affects an athlete's performance.
Sports dentistry includes not only protecting patients from injury, but also helping them enhance performance. Mouthguards create a cushion on potential stabilization of the temporomandibular joint. Sports dentistry is a combination of treatment and prevention.
