Protecting your smile is an important part of your oral health, and our dentist and team would be happy to speak with you about receiving a custom sports mouth guard to protect your smile from an oral accident or injury during sporting activities.

Mouth guards work to protect your teeth and gums from accidental damage, especially if you play on a sports team or recreationally, and should be a regular part of your sports attire. High-impact sports often require the use of a mouth guard for your own good, but they should also be worn during recreational activities such as skateboarding to reduce your risk of injury.

You can choose from several different styles of mouth guards, and Dr. Lawrence Wu can even custom create your sports mouth guard to fit your unique smile and dental needs. Other options for sports mouth guards are stock or boil and bite guards, which you can pick up at most sporting goods stores.

If you are committed to protecting your teeth during the upcoming sports season, we encourage you to speak with our dentist about the benefits of wearing a mouth guard in San Jose, California. Call 408-266-2800 to schedule a fitting at NuSmile Dental & Orthodontics promptly.
