Not all sports mouthguards are created equal.
While many sporting good stores sell mouthguards for sports, these versions are not as effective as the PlaySafe sports mouthpiece offered by Dr. Sowell at Sowell Sensational Smiles.
That’s because our mouthguards are custom made to fit you or your child’s teeth. They are an exact duplication of your mouth and can even be made to fit comfortably and safely over braces.

PlaySafe sports mouthguards are built by layering various-density materials with the soft protective layer against the teeth and the hardest layer on the outside to absorb shocks or blows to protect your teeth.
