Mouthguards / Sportsguard
A mouthguard or sportsguard is a flexible plastic form that fits around the teeth and is worn during sports activities where there is a high possibility of contact with other participants. Sports like boxing, football, and hockey are some of the sports that consider mouthguards as a must, but other sports such as basketball, bicycling, soccer and martial arts encourage its use as well.
Wearing a mouthguard during these sports activities prevent dental injuries brought about by the bottom jaw getting jammed on the upper jaw during contact, and also guards the soft tissues of the mouth from getting lacerated by the teeth on sudden contact especially when the patient is wearing braces.
Stock mouthguards are available in sports stores but they don’t fit as well as the custom made sportsguards we can make for you. We make the mouthguard out of a model of your own teeth, so you can be sure that it will be an exact fit for you alone.
