Sports Guards/Athletic Guards

Sports guards should be used by anyone, both children and adults, who play contact sports such as football, boxing, soccer, ice hockey, basketball, lacrosse, and field hockey. However, even those participating in noncontact sports (for example, gymnastics) and any recreational activity (for example, skateboarding, mountain biking) that might pose a risk of injury to the mouth would benefit from wearing a protective mouth guard. 

Why Use a Mouth Guard When Playing Sports? Because accidents can happen during any physical activity, the advantage of using a mouth guard during sports is that it can help limit the risk of mouth-related injuries to your lips, tongue, and soft tissues of your mouth. Mouth guards also help you avoid chipped or broken teeth, nerve damage to a tooth, or even tooth loss.

Sports guards can be made at our dental office that is custom fit for your mouth.  Sport injuries can happen anytime anywhere, it is always best to prevent from damages by simply wearing sports guards.
