A sports guard is a type of mouth guard that is used to protect your smile during sports and other athletic activities. The sports guard fits over your teeth to protect them from injury during recreational activities. We provide custom sports guards in Duluth, Georgia to keep your smile healthy. Dr. Bhoompalli, our friendly dentist, will ensure that your sports guard fits comfortably so you can continue playing your best while protecting your smile.

Do I need a sports guard?

If you participate in sports or athletic activities of any type, a sports guard can prevent dental injury. Sports guards are a great choice for all sports, both high contact and low contact. From football, hockey, and baseball to wrestling, soccer, and basketball, a sports guard can effectively protect your smile. A sports guard can help prevent dental injuries such as:

  • A knocked-out tooth
  • An extruded (partially knocked-out) tooth
  • A chipped, fractured (cracked), or broken tooth
  • A lost dental filling
  • A lost dental crown
  • Some types of soft tissue injuries (injury to the lips, cheeks, tongue, and gums)

Sports guards are recommended for patients of all ages, from children to adults. To learn more about how a sports guard can protect your smile, we welcome you to contact us at Johns Creek Family Dentistry soon.
