Sportsguards in Aurora
Protect your child's smile with a custom sportsguard at our Aurora dental office!If you've enrolled your child or yourself into hockey, basketball, baseball, soccer, self defense or any contact sport or activity, you have undoubtedly created a list of safety equipment you will need. If a mouth guard isn't on your list of equipment, consider adding it.
What Are Sportsguards?A sportguard, or protective mouthguard, is an acrylic, retainer-like appliance worn at night or during contact sports to protect your teeth from injury. Sportguards are custom-made to each individual's teeth. An impression of your teeth is taken and used to fabricate the mouthguard. Once it is ready, return to the office for a second visit to try it on and make any adjustments to ensure it fits comfortably.
Why Should You Get a Sportsguard?A sportsguard can be made to protect teeth and jaw joints from trauma that may be sustained while playing contact sports, which is a crucial component of concussion prevention.
If you would like to have a sportsguard made for your child or yourself, please contact Dr. Harry Weingarten and his qualified team at our Aurora dental office to schedule an appointment.
