It’s Mouthguard Season!
WHEN IT COME TO preventing sports-related dental injuries, your best offense is a great defense! A custom mouthguard made from a specialized plastic material is built to prevent you from injury by withstanding impact, absorbing and redistributing shock, and decreasing the chances of a concussion.
Over the counter “boil and bite” mouthguards provide only minimal protection due to them being uncomfortable and bulky to wear. This may make it more difficult to breathe or talk while playing your activity. With custom mouthguards the top-quality plastics are fit to each individual’s mouth making them more comfortable.
You Should Always Wear A Mouthguard
Sports such as football, hockey, wrestling and lacrosse all require mouthguards – people that play these are the least likely to come into our office with an injury because they were required to wear this appliance. The sports that don’t require mouthguards to be worn and result in many injuries each year are soccer, cheerleading and basketball. There are some other activities that one wouldn’t think to wear a mouthguard such as jumping on trampolines, riding on scooters, using pogo sticks and skateboards. It isn’t a bad idea just to pop in a mouthguard when doing any activity where one can fall, run into someone else or get hit in the face with an elbow or a ball.
