What Is a Sports Mouthguard?

Mouthguards can help patients who play sports. Sports mouthguards are made for athletes and help to protect your teeth from physical damage from personal contact in the participation of the activity, or injury by contact with the equipment used to play the sport. A sports mouthguard is made with a protective material and may cover both the jaw and gum area.

How Does a Sports Mouthguard Work?

Sports mouthguards are made of a softer material, and this is so the guard can absorb a blow or sudden impact. Sports mouthguards cover not only the surface of your teeth, but they also cover your gums. Custom made sports mouthguards are fit perfectly to your mouth and are comfortable when worn during your favorite sports. Our custom guards allow your athlete to still talk or communicate but provide outstanding protection from injury.

What Are the Benefits of a Custom Mouthguard?

Custom mouthguards are more effective compared to store bought guards, because they are custom fit to your mouth shape and size. At San Diego Dentures & Implant Specialists, we provide a detailed consultation to discuss what type of mouthguard may work best for you.
