Teeth can not grow back, be sure to protect your family’s smiles while playing sports.
Mouthguards are an affordable and simple solution for protecting your teeth and jaw while playing impact sports. A mouthguard can prevent tooth loss due to a sports-related injury. Replacing a missing tooth can be costly and time-consuming. Using a custom fit mouthguard protects the teeth from trauma or loss.
Sports-related injuries are a common cause for tooth loss, especially amongst children and teens.
When compared to over the counter “bite-and-fit” options, a custom sports mouthguard designed by your dentist provides far better protection. Custom mouthguards are made from a direct mold of your teeth and jaw. The mouthguard will fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth for a secure fit. Custom mouthguards tend to have a higher compliance rate from athletes due to improved fit. Athletes can focus on their performance – not on biting down on a mouthguard to keep it from falling out. A custom mouthguard also helps to prevent injury to the jaw caused by overexerting tension in the jaw muscle during sports.
Tooth loss is painful, embarrassing, and can lead to a wide range of secondary dental health issues when left untreated. Replacing missing teeth in growing smiles can be costly, and complex. A mouthguard can prevent tooth loss and save parents thousands of dollars in long term dental costs.
