Keep Your Smile Safe While Playing the Sports You Love

At Irvine Spectrum Dental, we love having fun, and we know that sports are a great way to do that. If you think so, too, odds are you play some sort of sport. Our team loves that we have patients who are active in sports and physical activities, but we also want to make sure that you stay safe while playing your game. A great way to keep your smile safe and still enjoy your sport is to wear a customized mouth guard.

Other sports may bring physical contact on a more infrequent basis. No matter the sport you play, however, there is often the possibility of getting hit in the face, either from a person, ball or other object. Should this happen, it is important that your mouth has the proper protection to avoid severe damage.

When you visit our dental practice, our dentist can provide you with a custom-made mouth guard. While you can pick up a mouth guard at your local sports store, they are designed to be more universal than personal. In contrast, Dr. Anthony Yu will use an impression of your unique bite to create a comfortable, secure mouth guard that provides maximum protection for your teeth, gums, tongue, lips and cheeks.

If you play any kind of sport, especially a contact sport, we encourage you to visit our practice for your custom-made mouth guard in Irvine, California. We can protect your smile, so you can get out and play bring your A-game.
