Many sports involve contact and risk of mouth injury. No one wants a chipped or missing tooth affecting their smile! With a sport’s guard, you can focus on playing your best without worrying about chipping or losing a tooth. Keep your smile full and healthy by getting a custom mouthguard.
A sports guard is a mouthpiece that is worn over the teeth to protect them from possible impact. Any sport that involves contact, flying objects, or possibly falling, should be played with a sports guard to protect the teeth. Sports guards are also custom made to ensure a proper fit. This is important in keeping the mouthguard in place and keeping you comfortable so you will forget you’re even wearing one!
Common sports that might require a mouthguard include football, soccer, basketball, baseball, boxing, gymnastics, skateboarding, and mountain biking. Those with braces should be especially aware of possible mouth injuries. Injury to the mouth could result in broken brackets and other damage to the mouth. If you have braces and participate in a sport, a sports guard can act as a barrier between your braces and your lips and cheeks.
Mouth guards should be replaced with every season or once they show signs of wear. Replacing a mouthguard is especially important for children and teens whose teeth are still shifting and developing.
