The Sporting Essential! Your Active Smile

Each year literally millions of teeth are lost due to sporting activities. Athletes are 60% more likely to sustain tooth damage when not wearing a mouthguard. It’s been estimated that properly fitted facemasks and mouthguards prevent thousands of injuries yearly in high school and collegiate football.

You can buy boil-and-bite types, but tests conducted by sports dentists and health professionals prove that these do not provide the protection or comfort that a properly diagnosed and fabricated custom-made mouthguard does. Don’t take chances! Call us. We’d be happy to ensure your teeth and mouth are protected, because we can never impress too strongly how important it is to take care of your smile!
