Mouth guards help to protect the teeth and mouth from a blow to the face, minimizing risk of broken teeth and injuries to the lips, tongue, jaw, or face. Sports guards are most commonly worn during athletic activities that involve physical contact or flying equipment such as football and baseball.
At Southern Roots Dental, we create custom-made mouth guards for the best fit. These sports guards are made from tear-resistant materials and are long-lasting. They are colorless, odorless, easy to clean, and won’t restrict your breathing, so you can focus on playing your best!
Sports guards are also important for those with braces, as physical contact can cause damage to braces, as well as contribute to other dental issues.
It is important to take proper care of your sports guard to ensure its longevity. Between sporting events, be sure to rinse your sports guard before and after each use, as well as brush it with toothpaste and a toothbrush. Store your sports guard in a dry place, such as a ventilated container, to prevent bacteria from growing. Also, never leave your mouth guard in the sun or hot water for a long period of time, as this could damage it. If your sports guard begins to show signs of wear or is damaged, bring contact us right away to have it replaced.
