Sporting accidents are one of the most common causes of dental injury. Every year thousands of people, adults and children, are treated for dental injuries that could have been avoided or minimized by wearing a protective, custom-fitted mouth guard.

Treatment can involve several lengthy appointments presuming it is even possible to save the tooth. The cost of an injury to your teeth or jaw far exceeds the cost of a custom-fitted mouth guard.
