Wearing a sports mouthguard is one of the smartest things an athlete can do. This protective equipment may in fact provide better insurance than pads or other types of guards you wear during organized sports. Whether your athlete is in soccer, basketball, football, or something else, a sports mouthguard may be the most important piece of equipment you invest in. Any time there’s a chance to fall or get hit in the mouth, an oral injury could occur. Thankfully, it can also be prevented.
Dental trauma is common amongst children and teenagers. If your child participates in a contact sport, we recommend investing in a mouthguard to avoid injuries. There are key differences in the over-the-counter mouthguards vs the custom made mouthguards that our team fabricates. Please inquire more information from Dr. Matt about the benefits of each type.
