Our dentist and team are committed to ensuring the wellbeing of your oral health, safeguarding it against discomfort and injuries. In pursuit of this goal, we provide athletes with sports mouth guards. If you play a sport, this type of mouth guard will help prevent damage or injury to your smile. Sports guards are designed to fit snugly over your teeth and are often required equipment for high-contact sports such as wrestling, football, hockey, rugby and soccer. However, athletes in all sports can benefit from wearing this appliance, including those who participate in individual sports such as mountain biking and rock climbing.
While there are several types of athletic mouth guards available in generic forms in sporting goods stores, a custom-made mouth guard from our dentist will be more effective in safeguarding your smile. These mouth guards are meticulously crafted to ensure a comfortable fit while offering maximum protection against injuries such as knocked-out teeth, chipped teeth and damage to the tongue, cheeks, lips and gums.
We encourage you to call Gentle Smiles Dental today at 770-455-6602 to learn more about how sports mouth guards in Atlanta, Georgia, can help you play it safe and schedule your appointment with Dr. Shelly Mixson. We look forward to helping you care for and protect your smile.
