Sports guards help protect your teeth from blows to the face and head and are important for athletes to wear. Anyone who is participating in a sport are prone to falls, body contact, flying equipment and unexpected situations. Sports guards typically cover your upper teeth and are specifically designed to prevent broken teeth, damage to your lips and any kind of other oral damage.
If you have braces or any other type of dental appliance located on your lower teeth, your dentist may suggest a guard for your lower jaw as well. Research shows that oral injuries are prominent but are also preventable. All high risk sports players are recommended to get their very own custom made sports guard.
