Athletic mouth guards, which are also known as sports guards, are mouth guards worn during sports and other athletic activities. Dental injury is common in sports, and our friendly dentists at Kizer Dental Associates are dedicated to helping you protect your smile however we can. Our athletic mouth guards are custom made to fit your smile. The sports guard fits over your teeth while you play, helping to protect your teeth from damage and injury. We can also make athletic mouth guards that fit over your orthodontic appliances (such as braces) to prevent your appliance from damage. A sports guard in Germantown, Tennessee can help to prevent dental injuries such as:
- A knocked-out tooth
- An extruded (partially knocked-out) tooth
- A chipped or broken tooth
- A fractured or cracked tooth
- Injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth
- A lost dental crown or filling
Dr. Kizer and Dr. Smith encourage athletes of all ages to wear sports guards to protect their smiles. Whether you play a contact sport, such as hockey, football, or wrestling, or a low-impact sport, like tennis, running, or cycling, you can benefit from an athletic mouth guard.
