A sports guard is an essential safety equipment tool for anyone who plays contact sports as it protects the user from tooth loss and other oral injuries. Sports guards can also prevent other major injuries, such as concussions, jaw fractures and neck injuries by not allowing the lower and upper jaw from colliding into each other. Custom sports guards are suggested as they offer more protection towards the structure of the teeth than over-the-counter sports guard do.
