Your teeth are protected by enamel, which is the hardest natural material in your body. However, your teeth are still susceptible to wear and damage over time due to excessive grinding and dental injury if they are not well-protected.
Good teeth protection from injury is especially important if you’re an athlete, particularly an athlete who engages in highly physical sports such as football, boxing, or wrestling. Sports guards worn over your teeth act as effective shock absorbers, cushioning your teeth and jaws against extreme blunt forces. While standard guards can be found and bought at stores, they often fit poorly and provide minimal protection as a result.
At Lacewood Square Dentistry, we provide custom-made sports guards that are tailored to smoothly fit the shape of your mouth and jaw, allowing them to remain firmly and comfortably in place during extreme physical activity, and to effectively protect your teeth.
