If you play sports or participate in other physical activities, our dentist may recommend that you wear an athletic mouth guard. Also known as a sports mouth guard, this oral appliance is designed to help prevent injury so that you can keep your teeth and mouth healthy. Sports guards are required equipment in many high-contact sports, including wrestling, football, hockey, boxing, soccer, basketball, baseball and rugby. However, even in low-contact sports or individual physical activities, sports guards can be highly beneficial in keeping your smile safe.
There are many types of sports mouth guards available. In fact, you can usually purchase generic or boil-and-bite mouth guards at your local sporting goods store. However, a custom-made mouth guard will be the most effective when it comes to protecting your smile. A custom mouth guard is designed and created by Dr. Bruno Giglio to fit your smile perfectly and prevent injuries such as knocked-out teeth, chipped teeth and damage to your soft oral tissues.
