Your Fonthill Choice for Sports Guards

Oral injuries are a common occurrence. From chipped or broken teeth to injuries to the tongue, lips, face, or jaw, oral injuries are easy to sustain. 39% of all dental injuries occur while playing sports, and of those injuries, about 75% affect at least one of the most visible teeth in the mouth. Team Smile Dentistry is pleased to offer sports guards to help prevent or minimize such injuries.

What is a Sport Guard?

A sports guard is a soft plastic dental appliance that is worn over the upper teeth in order to protect both the teeth and soft tissues of the mouth from injuries sustained to the face and head. Anyone participating in a sport that involves body contact falls, or flying equipment, should consider a sports guard. While over-the-counter stock and boil sports guards do offer some protection, they do not fit nearly as well as a custom guard which can lessen their effectiveness in addition to the fact that they can be bulky and make breathing and speaking difficult.

The most effective and comfortable sports guards are custom made by your dentist to specifically fit your unique mouth and teeth. A sports guard that is properly fitted can effectively absorb the shock of impacts, and protect teeth from potential chips, cracks, fractures, knockouts, and damage. It is especially important that those who wear braces or other fixed orthodontic appliances wear a sports guard because brackets and wires pose a greater risk of damage to soft tissue if an impact were to occur.
