A sports guard is worn over your teeth to protect them from blows to the face and head, whilst playing sports. This includes rugby, cricket, soccer, basketball, skateboarding, biking etc. A sports guard covers the upper teeth and protects against broken teeth and injury to lips.
A custom-made mouth guard is made specifically to fit the individual and therefore is the most comfortable and provides the best protection.
Your dentist makes an impression of your teeth and then constructs the mouth guard over a model of them. They can be made in different colours and are the choice worn by most professional athletes.
