Sports guards are a specially made rubber-like cover, which fits exactly over the teeth and gums, cushioning them and protecting them from damage.
It is important to wear a professionally made sports guard whenever you play sport that involves physical contact or moving objects. This includes: cricket, hockey and football – which can cause broken and damaged teeth; and American football, boxing and rugby – which can all cause broken or dislocated jaws. A sports guard will help protect against these events.
“Studies have shown that between 13% and 39% of all dental injuries are sports related. Approximately 25% of children in the UK will injure or lose a front tooth at some stage. Contact sports are increasingly popular which has resulted in a rise of traumatic dental injuries.”
