Sports Injury Prevention
Serious dental injuries can easily be prevented by wearing a mouthguard during contact sports. Impacts and collisions without a mouthgaurd can cause the lips, cheeks, and tongue from being cut or bruised as well as teeth being knocked out, chipped or fractured.
Sports that require mouthguards
The American Dental Association recommends wearing custom mouthguards for the following sports: acrobats, basketball, baseball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, handball, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, shot putting, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer, softball, squash, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weightlifting, and wrestling.
Custom Mouthguards are Important
It has been suggested that a properly fitted custom mouthguard may reduce the rate of concussions. Unlike over-the-counter mouthpieces, an athletic mouthguard from our practice can be custom-designed to fit comfortably and securely in your mouth. We will utilize an actual impression to provide extensive coverage for all of your teeth.
