Run, Jump, Tackle, and not Worry, with a custom-made Sports Guard to Protect Your Teeth

For our active, sporty patients a sports guard is a specially made, rubber-like cover which fits exactly over your teeth and gums, cushioning them and protecting them from damage. A well-designed sports guard not only protects the teeth but also protects TMJ from injury by supporting and cushioning the jaw joints in times of blunt forces to the lower jaw. In harsh blows this can even reduce the risk of jaw fracture.

It is important to wear a professionally made mouth guard whenever you play sport that involves physical contact or moving objects. This includes: cricket, hockey and football – which can cause broken and damaged teeth; and American football, boxing and rugby – which are more readily the cause of broken or dislocated jaws. A mouth guard will help protect against these events.

During orthodontic treatment
If you are worried about wearing braces and continuing your highly active lifestyle, you need not be. Artiste Studios knows that our Orthodontic patients are concerned about damaging their newly fitted braces or even their own teeth while playing contact sports or engaging in rigorous physical activity, which is why if you take part in any of these contact sports please ask us about our range of custom made sports guards. We easily personalize these guards and have them readily available soon after you fit your braces.
