Sports guards help to protect your teeth while you're playing close contact sports. They can be made for children as well as adults. The purpose of these guards is to prevent your teeth from being severely damaged if you get hit in the face or mouth by another player. Sports guards are comfortable and custom made to fit each player.
You're a candidate for a sports guard if you play sports and want to protect your teeth. The guard works by creating a cushion in front of the teeth as well as between the teeth. This prevents trauma from occurring if you get hit in the mouth or if you accidentally grind your teeth during gameplay. To determine if a sports guard is right for you, you'll need to have a consultation with Dr. Jason.
