If you or anyone in your family is involved in sports, or other recreational activities, it is very important to always protect your face and mouth. Wear a custom fit athletic sports guard to prevent tooth loss, broken teeth, and other injuries to your jaw or face.
A mouth guard is made to cover and shield your upper teeth with a protective inner cushion. It is common for upper teeth to get damaged during an impact because they are more vulnerable. Lower teeth are set back a bit more and are less exposed.
An essential part of any sports-oriented person’s gear, an athletic sports mouth guard should be used starting at an early age. A dental catastrophe can occur when you least expect it, especially if you play a high-risk sport that involves a lot physical contact, or even during a seemingly harmless activity like gymnastics or skating.
Unlike over-the-counter mouth guards, sports guards that are custom-made specifically for your mouth by your dentist at Renken Dentistry in offer the best fit and optimal protection; book an appointment for your own custom mouth guard at our Springfield, IL office today!
