Sports Guards

Summer is sadly winding down and fall and winter are on their way with new seasons of sports just beginning. With the start of any new sport season it is important to remember that with all the protective body gear needed to keep ourselves and our kids safe, mouth guards are just as necessary. And, like any piece of equipement, it needs to be properly fitted and replaced on a regular basis. There are many types of sports guards to choose from including a custom made guard.

Custom mouth guards are made by taking an impression of the wearers teeth. From that impression a model is formed and from that a custom guard is created out of a pliable plastic. A custom guard ensures a tight but comfortable fitting guard that protects not only the teeth but lips, gums and cheeks as well. Sports guards also have the added bonus of protecting the jarring forces of teeth to teeth contact, which means reduced head trauma and concussions.

A very simple yet very important piece of equipement. Come in and discuss the best guard for your mouth and your sport. Get yours made, specifically for you, by making an appointment at our office at (705) 721-1122.
