Custom Sports Guards

Custom sports guards are recommended as an effective way to prevent oral injuries to the tongue, lips, face, teeth, and jaw while participants play their favorite sports. The Canadian Dental Association recommends that athletes of all ages wear sports guards, especially for contact sports such as hockey, basketball, soccer, football, martial arts, rugby, and wrestling.

Custom guards provide a protective barrier overtop of the teeth that is able to more evenly distribute the force of a blow to the face. Many studies have shown that sports guards can prevent the teeth from shifting, chipping or getting knocked out, while minimizing the effects of other oral injuries and concussion.
