Concussions have become a serious issue for athletes involved in contact sports like football, basketball, wrestling, volleyball, soccer, hockey, baseball and softball at all levels of competition. Dr. Horak also sees many damaging oral sports injuries that include fractured or chipped teeth or the complete loss of a tooth from an impact injury. One way for an athlete to protect themselves from the serious effects that concussions cause and from damaging, traumatic tooth injuries is to wear a sports mouth guard. Dr. Horak provides athletes with custom fitted mouth guards that athletes find much more comfortable to wear, more secure, easier to speak with and most importantly, more protective than over-the-counter stock boil and bite mouth guards.
