Mouth Guards / Sports Guards

Mouth Guards / Sports Guards

Active and competitive sports have grown immensely over the past few years, and it has been estimated that 20-25 million adolescents participate in a variety of competitive sports. With this amount of participation, the occurrence of injuries increases substantially. It has been reported that almost 40% of all adolescent injuries occur in a competitive sporting environment, and of that percentage, 10-20% of them are maxillofacial (injuries to the mouth).

Participating in active sports while not wearing a protective mouth guard puts an athlete at a higher risk of serious dental injury, as well as other head injuries. When receiving a blow to the head, the teeth and jaw often impact together, sending a shock through the neck and spine, thus resulting in substantial injuries that may have been preventable with a mouth guard.

Custom mouth guards provided by your Austin dentist can be an excellent way to protect your teeth while playing sports. Unlike uncomfortable, bulky traditional boil and bite guards, our customized mouth guards offer a comfortable fit and superior protection. Our mouth guards can prevent serious injury and save you a lot of pain.
