What is a sports mouth guard?
A sports guard is a mouth guard that is specially designed to be used during sports and athletic activities. The sports guard fits over your teeth, protecting your smile from injury while you play. At Premier Dental Care, we provide Under Armour® Performance Mouthwear to protect your smile and improve your game. The Under Armour sports guard works to both prevent dental injury and enhance your athletic abilities. The sports guard fits over your teeth and prevents you from clenching your jaw while you play, helping to relieve pressure on the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint, or TMJ) and prevent the excessive production of the stress hormone cortisol. This helps you feel less stressed and fatigued so you can keep playing your best.
