Our whole team is dedicated to restoring your smile and ensuring a comfortable visit. In order to help us do this, we provide several types of mouthguards at our office. For our athletic patients, we often recommend an athletic mouth guard or sports guard. Sports guards fit over your teeth while you engage in physical activity to protect your smile from injury. Sports guards are especially important for our patients who play high-contact sports such as wrestling, football, hockey and rugby. Whether you play soccer, basketball or baseball, a sports guard can be a great way to protect your smile and keep it safe.
While many types of athletic mouth guards are available, a custom-made mouth guard is the most effective in protecting your smile. This type of mouthguard is customly designed to comfortably fit your smile and prevent dental injury. A sports guard can also prevent injury to the soft tissues of the mouth, including the tongue, lips, cheeks, and gums.
