Sports Dentistry

Injuries to the teeth and mouth are common in many popular sports such as football, basketball and baseball.  Unfortunately when these injuries do occur they often leave long lasting dental problems that seem to persist in one way or another throughout life.  Prevention is the key, and the use of a custom-made laminated mouthguard is the best way to reduce and prevent dental injuries.  Dr. Grant is very involved in sports dentistry and is the team oral and maxillofacial surgeon for the Anaheim Ducks NHL team.

  • Baseball
  • Softball
  • Rugby
  • Volleyball
  • Boxing
  • Gymnastics
  • Soccer
  • Wrestling
