Fabrication of Sport Guards

by Dr. Nadia Abazarnia
The American College of Prosthodontists recommends the use of custom-made mouth guards (sport guards) to better protect the teeth and jaws from trauma during athletic activity.
A sport mouth guard is an appliance that is prescribed to an athlete to protect his teeth from being damaged from a physical blow to the face or an accident. A sport mouth guard is usually made with a thicker material and given its purpose it is made to extend to cover the entire jaw, even the gum so that the entire mouth can be protected.
When an athlete has his mouth guards made, he can make a decision to incorporate his team colors with the appliance or even the team logo or sign.
