If you participate in contact sports you should consider a sports guard to protect your teeth from injury. In many sports they are mandatory. While some over-the-counter guards are available, they tend to be bulky which deters use. A custom guard will be fitted specifically to your teeth, which will make it less bulky, and therefore more likely to remain in your mouth.
The process is easy, a simple impression and a second visit to ensure it fits properly. You can select a specific color/design if you like to match your team colors. The protection it provides is priceless.
