Protect Your Pearly Whites with Sports Guards

boy in helmet with mouthguard in Are you an athlete, or is someone else in your family an athlete? If so, you understand how important it is to have the right protective gear.

If you don’t have a custom-made sports guard, though, you’re missing an essential piece of equipment, no matter what sport you play. A quality sports guard will help you protect your teeth, your lips, your tongue, and your jaw. It can even reduce the severity of concussions.

Not just any sports guard will do, though. If you’re relying on a sports guard you found in your local sporting goods store, your teeth may not be as protected as you think they are. A basic sports guard will provide some protection but it won’t fit as well as one made just for you by Dr. McIntosh. What’s more, a poorly-fitting sports guard may even contribute to a poor performance on the field or the court.

If you’re an athlete in the Keller and Ft. Worth area, we recommend visiting Dr. McIntosh for a special sports guard consultation. During your appointment, we can talk with you about the benefits of a custom-made sports guard, and we can start preparing one for you. Protecting the smiles of active patients is important to us.

Call Distinguished Dental if you'd like to learn more about sports guards, or if you’d like to schedule an appointment. We’re happy that we can offer custom-made sports guards to patients from the Keller and Ft. Worth area.
