Athletic Mouth Guards
Protect you athelete’s smile.
One of the best ways to lead a healthy lifestyle and maintain a great level of health is by playing sports. However, when a child begins to participate in recreational activities and organized sports, injuries can occur.
What Does a Mouthguard Do?
A mouthguard is an important protective device that a person wears over his or her teeth. A properly fitted mouthguard, or mouth protector, will protect the teeth and mouth from damage and absorb impact if a person suffers some kind of oral or dental trauma. The American Dental Association has suggested that over two dozen sporting activities can be potentially harmful to athletes. These include skiing, surfing, handball, football, basketball, equestrian sports, and more.
Why Should I Wear Mouthguard?
Whether you’re playing basketball, baseball, football, or any other sport, there’s an inherent risk to your dental health. Any sport with the potential for physical contact has the possibility of causing you dental harm. However, if you wear a mouthguard, you’ll be able to greatly reduce the risk of chipping, cracking, or losing any of your teeth.
Even though a mouthguard may cost extra money, it can save money in the long run by preventing you from needing expensive restorative dentistry procedures to repair any broken teeth.
