How Sports Guards
Protect Your Athletes

Guard your winning smile with sports guards! Learn how these essential protectors shield your teeth during intense activities, ensuring a bright and intact grin for a lifetime.
  • Protection Against Dental Injuries: Mouth guards act as a cushion, absorbing and dispersing the force of impact to the teeth and jaws during contact sports. They help prevent injuries such as broken teeth, fractured jaws, and soft tissue injuries like cuts and bruises inside the mouth.
  • Protection for Orthodontic Appliances: Athletes undergoing orthodontic treatment with braces or other appliances can benefit from mouth guards, which help protect their teeth and braces from damage during sports activities.
  • Comfort and Adaptability: Custom-fitted mouth guards are designed to fit the individual's teeth and mouth shape, providing a comfortable and secure fit. They are also designed to allow for easy breathing and speaking, minimizing interference during sports activities.

    What are Sports Mouth Guards?

    What are Sports Mouth Guards? Learn about these protective devices for athletes.

    These sports guards play a crucial role in safeguarding an athlete’s oral health by providing a protective barrier against the potential hazards of various sports. Whether engaged in contact sports like football, hockey, or martial arts, or even non-contact activities like basketball or gymnastics, athletes are susceptible to accidental collisions or impacts that can lead to severe dental trauma. The unique design of sports guards ensures a comfortable fit, allowing athletes to breathe and communicate effectively while still benefiting from the protective features of the guard. This balance between functionality and protection makes sports guards an indispensable accessory for athletes of all ages and skill levels.

    Moreover, the customization aspect of sports guards is pivotal in optimizing their effectiveness. Dentists often create these guards based on impressions of an individual’s teeth, ensuring a snug fit that maximizes protection. This personalized approach not only enhances comfort but also promotes better compliance among athletes, as they are more likely to consistently wear a guard that feels comfortable and secure. As a result, sports guards become an integral part of an athlete’s gear, contributing not only to their physical safety but also to their overall well-being by minimizing the risk of dental injuries that could lead to long-term oral health issues.

    Custom-Fit Mouthguards

    These are professionally made by dentists like Dr. Sinha to fit the unique contours of an individual’s mouth, providing the best protection and comfort.

    Boil-and-Bite Mouthguards

    These are available over-the-counter and can be shaped to fit the wearer’s mouth by boiling them in water and then biting down to create a custom fit.

    Stock Mouthguards

    These are pre-formed and ready-to-wear mouthguards available in standard sizes. While they are inexpensive, they often provide less protection and comfort compared to custom-fit mouthguards.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Explore essential Sports Guards FAQs: From choosing the right type to proper maintenance, get answers to your questions on protecting yourself in various sports activities.

    Why do I need a sports guard?

    At PS Dental, we prioritize your oral health during physical activities. A sports guard is crucial to protect your teeth from potential injuries caused by sports-related impacts. Whether you’re an athlete or a weekend warrior, wearing a custom-fit sports guard can prevent fractures, chips, and other dental injuries, ensuring your smile stays intact.
    Unlike generic store-bought guards, PS Dental provides custom-fit sports guards tailored to your unique dental structure. Our professional team takes impressions of your teeth, ensuring a snug fit that offers optimal protection. Custom guards are more comfortable, provide better coverage, and offer enhanced shock absorption, giving you peace of mind during every game or activity.
    While a sports guard primarily protects your teeth, it can indirectly enhance your performance. By reducing the risk of dental injuries, you can focus more on your game without worrying about potential accidents. PS Dental’s custom sports guards are designed for comfort, allowing you to breathe easily and communicate effectively during your activities.
    To maintain optimal protection, we recommend replacing your sports guard annually or sooner if you notice signs of wear or damage. Regular check-ups at PS Dental ensure your guard continues to fit properly and provides reliable defense against potential dental injuries.
    Absolutely! PS Dental offers custom sports guards that accommodate braces. Our team designs guards that fit seamlessly over braces, providing continuous protection during sports activities. Don’t compromise on your oral health – invest in a custom sports guard to safeguard your smile, even while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
    While essential for contact sports, sports guards are beneficial for any physical activity with the potential for falls or collisions. PS Dental recommends wearing a guard for sports like biking, skateboarding, or even recreational activities to minimize the risk of dental injuries and maintain your oral health.
    Maintaining good oral hygiene extends to your sports guard. Rinse it with cold water after each use, and periodically clean it with mild soap and a toothbrush. Store your guard in a well-ventilated case to prevent bacteria growth. Regularly check for wear and tear, and schedule a visit to PS Dental if you notice any issues with your guard.
    While boil-and-bite guards are available, they lack the precision and comfort of custom-fit guards. PS Dental strongly recommends opting for a custom sports guard for superior protection. Our team ensures a precise fit, taking into account your unique dental structure, providing unmatched security and comfort during physical activities.
    If your sports guard feels uncomfortable, schedule an appointment at PS Dental. Our team can assess the fit and make necessary adjustments to ensure optimal comfort and protection. Avoid modifying the guard yourself, as this can compromise its effectiveness. We are here to ensure your sports guard enhances your oral safety without causing any discomfort.
    Absolutely! PS Dental offers custom sports guards for children, ensuring their developing teeth are well-protected during physical activities. Investing in a custom guard for your child provides peace of mind, knowing their smiles are safeguarded while they enjoy sports and recreational activities in Glastonbury and Bristol, CT.

    Had my cleaning done with Amanda who was incredibly thorough and such a pleasure to chat with. Had my cleaning done about 20 minutes after being shook by the little earthquake so my anxiety level was a little high. Amanda was gentle and very informative throughout the cleaning. She made me feel calm and relaxed in her care. Dr. Sinha then came in to check my X-rays and my teeth. I love that he takes his time and doesn’t rush through. He offers great explanation into his decision making process and I think he’s one the most honest dentists I have encountered. The energy in this practice is so positive and it was all around a great experience. They stay up to date with the newest advances in dental care and the office is super clean. I am happy to be a patient here. 💯 recommend to anyone who cares about their teeth and is looking for a great dentist. Thank you guys for being so awesome!❤️

    I was in search of a new dentist after relocating to the area. Came across PS Dental and was very pleased with the overall service, quant office and service team. Amanda (hygienist) was very professional and her cleaning was painless. Morgan (front office) response time was beyond expectations and she was able to answer my many inquiries. 10/10 experience overall and I will be having my wife come over as a new patient hopefully soon!
