Sports Mouth Guards
posted: Jul. 29, 2013.
With football season upon us, mouthguards are very important for protecting our kids teeth. According to the American Dental Association, more than 200,000 oral injuries are prevented annually in this country by sports mouthguards. The benefits of sports mouthguards have been well documented. They are important in preventing dental injuries to children, but teenagers and adults can also benefit greatly from them during sports such as soccer, volleyball, baseball, martial arts, mountain biking, etc. Sports mouthguards are not all created equal. The typical sportsguard found in sporting goods stores do not fit as accuratley as custom fabricated types so they can often be uncomfortable and can interfere with athletes breathing and speaking ability. A custom fabricated mouthguard that can be provided for you from our office will fit better and will provide maximum protection. They are also available in five levels of protection which are designed specifically for your needs and come in lots of fun colors! Call us today to make an appointment!
