Why should I use a sports mouth guard?

When you are in a sport that involves contact with other athletes, it’s important to protect your teeth. While they sell mouth guards over the counter, did you know that you can go to a dentist to get a personalized sports mouth guard custom-fitted to your teeth? This way, you can ensure the best fit and keep your teeth safe while you play your sport. Watch this video by Dr. Arash Ravanbakhsh and then give us a call. We can help you get fitted for a custom sports mouth guard.

A sports mouth guard can be appropriate for you if you play sports that place a lot of pressure on your teeth. For people who are into very heavy lifting, play rugby, or even basketball, that can be appropriate depending on the level that you’re playing at. Feel free to come and talk to one of us here at Inglewood Family Dental to discuss if a sports guard is appropriate for you, and if so, provide you with your available options. We can even customize the colors to match your team or your desired color scheme.

Are you an athlete in a sport where teeth injuries are a risk? Whether you are playing hockey, lacrosse, football, basketball, or any other high-contact sport, a sports mouth guard can help protect your teeth and prevent you from grinding.
