If you enjoy playing sports or participating in other athletic activities, our experienced dentists may recommend a sports guard. Sports guards are mouth guards that are worn during sports games and other recreational activities to protect your smile from injury. Dental injuries are common in sports, and we are committed to keeping your smile safe. Our sports guards in Newtown, Connecticut are custom made to fit your smile comfortably, allowing you to continue playing your best while protecting your smile. A custom sports guard can protect your smile from various dental injuries, including:
- A knocked-out tooth
- A chipped tooth
- An extruded (partially knocked-out) tooth
- Fractured (cracked) teeth
Many sports guards cover the upper teeth only. Depending on your specific dental needs, Drs. Condon and Golisano will determine whether you would benefit from a sports guard for the bottom teeth as well. If you wear braces or another type of dental appliance, a sports guard is very important as it can protect both your appliance and your teeth from damage. For more information on sports guards, and to schedule your visit with our dentists, we invite you to call or visit us at Newtown Dentistry today.
