What is it?
Do you play a lot of rigorous sports? A sport guard will:
- Protect your teeth from becoming damaged or dislodged, and
- Offer added protection to your head and brain against concussions.
Yes, you can purchase a generic mouthguard at most pharmacies and sports shops, but to achieve optimal levels of protection, and really protect your teeth, a custom-made mouth guard, designed and fitted by a dental professional, is the way to go.
This will ensure a perfect fit, as opposed to an off-the-shelf mouth guard which will likely be usually ill-fitting, uncomfortable, and unlikely to stay in place and do its job effectively.
Why might you need it?
Mouth and head injuries are incredibly common in many sports – even those not specifically associated with tooth-loss!
If you play any sort of rigorous sport on a regular basis – soccer, football, hockey (ice and field), rugby, softball, baseball etc – you should consider investing in a sport guard.
Ball sports and full contact sports in particular demand proper, top-notch mouth guard protection.
