How do Sports Guards Work?
Sports guards provide a cushioned barrier between the teeth and soft tissues of the mouth, absorbing and distributing the force from impacts during physical activities. This reduces the risk of dental injuries like fractured teeth, lacerations to the gums, and jaw damage. Custom-fitted sports guards offer a snug fit, ensuring comfort and effective protection, allowing athletes to focus on their performance without worrying about oral injuries.
What Can a Sports Guard Help With?
- Dental Injury Prevention: Protects teeth from impacts during sports, reducing the risk of fractures, chips, and tooth loss.
- Oral Soft Tissue Protection: Shields lips, gums, and cheeks from cuts and bruises.
- Concussion Mitigation: May help lessen the severity of concussions by absorbing shock.
- Jaw Support: Provides stability to the jaw, preventing dislocations and injuries.
- Improved Athletic Performance: Offers peace of mind, allowing athletes to focus on their sport without fear of oral injuries.
