Creating Beautiful Smiles

I play sports. How can I protect my teeth?

Whether you wear braces or not, protecting your smile while playing sports is tremendously important. Mouthguards help protect your teeth and gums from injury, and picking the right one is essential. There are three basic types of mouthguards: the pre-made mouthguard, the “boil-and-bite” fitted mouthguard, and a custom-made mouthguard. 

Our office specializes in working with athletes to create customized performance mouthguards that help improve breathing, which in turn can help improve strength, agility, and balance—just ask!

Read more about customized performance mouthguards in Dr. Woodlief’s interview on Sports and Dentistry.
