Protecting Your Smile


Thousands of injuries are experienced each year on the playing field, on the basketball court, while biking or skating, and during other activities.
Injuries to the face in nearly every sport can harm your teeth, lips, cheeks, and tongue.

A properly fitted mouthguard, is an important piece of athletic gear that can protect your teeth and smile.
You may have seen them used in contact sports such as boxing, however they can help protect teeth even in non-contact sports.
Many experts recommend that a mouthguard be worn for any recreational activity that poses a risk of injury to the mouth.
If you are involved in these or other sports, contact us about getting a mouthguard:


An ideal mouthguard should be resilient and tear-resistant, fit comfortably and be easy to clean while not greatly affecting phonetics or breathing.
Custom-fitted mouthguards are made by your dentist using an impression of your teeth to allow the mouthguard to accurately fit to your mouth, allowing the best coverage and thickness.
