Sports Guards

Sports guards are a type of mouth guard that fits over the upper teeth to add a level of protection from impact during sports-related activities, such as soccer, basketball, or martial arts. Made of a semi-flexible material, sports guards have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of dental injuries, as reported by the ADA (American Dental Association).

Although there are ready-made sports guards or “boil and bite” varieties available at sporting goods stores, the guards are limited in size and generally do not fit well. These limitations unfortunately result in decreased use.
In our office, we are able to make a custom sports guard, uniquely adapted and comfortably fitted to your mouth – thus providing the best protection. With a child, the progression of baby teeth to adult teeth may require a new sports guard as the child grows and changes.
