Stay off the sidelines!

A sports guard covers your teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to your mouth, teeth, gums, lips, and face while playing sports.

Most schools and organized sports teams now require that participants routinely wear mouth guards. Though mouth guards are primarily designed to protect the teeth, they can also vastly reduce the degree of force transmitted from a trauma impact point (jaw) to the central nervous system (base of the brain). In this way, mouth guards help minimize the risk of traumatic brain injury, which is especially important for younger children.

Mouth guards also reduce the prevalence of the following injuries:

  • Cheek lesions
  • Concussions
  • Gum and soft tissue injuries
  • Jawbone fractures
  • Lip lesions
  • Neck injuries
  • Tongue lesions
  • Tooth fractures
At Oaklands Dental, Dr. Franco can help fit you or your child with a properly-fitted customized sports mouth guard. A good fit can cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to the soft tissues of the mouth.
