Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ (temporomandibular joint). We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials.
According to the American Dental Association, more than 200,000 oral injuries are prevented annually by sports mouthguards. In football, where mouthguards are mandatory, only 0.07% of all injuries involve the teeth or oral cavity. Conversely, in basketball where mouthguards are not worn, 34% of all injuries to players involved the oral cavity! The lifetime dental rehabilitation costs can approach several hundred dollars per tooth for someone who loses it in a sporting injury.

However, not all sports mouthguards are created equal. Comparing dentist fabricated, custom sports mouthguards with stock or boil and bite type mouthguards, typically found in sporting goods stores, reveal significant differences. A custom-fit mouthguard created by Victory Dental ensures 3 times the protection from the regular boil & bite.
