Custom Sports Guards
We offer professional custom sports guards at no cost for patients participating in any sport.
When it comes to protecting your mouth, a mouth guard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be a part of an athlete’s standard equipment. An athlete is 60 times more likely to suffer harm to teeth when not wearing a mouth guard.
Sports guards help buffer an impact that otherwise could cause broken teeth, jaw injuries, or cuts to the lip, tongue or face. Sports guards also may help to reduce the rate and severity of concussions.
What does getting custom sports guards involve?
This type of sports guard usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate the custom sports guard. At your second appointment, you will try in the sports guard to ensure proper fit.
You will receive care instructions for your custom sports guards and be encouraged to visit your dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy smile.
