Sports Guard

soccer imageA specially fabricated mouth guard can be made for your teeth. This guard fits over the upper or lower teeth to prevent broken or chipped teeth due to tooth-to-tooth contact. It is appropriate for sports where incidental contact with solid objects and other participants is common.

The smaller size and secure fit of a custom lab created mouth guard provides these advantages:

  • Clearer speech - when communication with teammates is important
  • More comfortable fit - so it's less distracting
  • Less restricted breathing - for improved performance
sports injury
Dental injuries in sports are primarily due to tooth-to-tooth contact. Being accidentally bumped in the chin with an elbow is not what directly causes most dental injuries. It's the collision of the lower teeth with the upper teeth after the bump that causes the damage. A mouth guard worn on the upper or lower teeth cushions the blow to protect both the upper and lower teeth.
