Sports Bite Guards
Sports accidents are common, and a bite guard is
especially beneficial to athletes who participate in
high-contact activities. It is not uncommon to hear of
athletes who have sustained serious damage to the teeth
and tissues of the mouth that could have been easily
prevented or minimized by a mouth guard. Football,
hockey, soccer, basketball and baseball are examples of just a few high-risk sports in which participants should wear mouth protection.
As an added benefit, bite guards are generally composed of materials that are naturally absorptive to force, meaning the guards not only protect the teeth, but may also lessen the force to the entire skull and brain should the wearer suffer an injury.
