Benefits of Athletic Mouthguards
In case you’re not clear on why you or your child needs an athletic mouthguard, here are the benefits you miss out on when not wearing one.
- Protects Against Outside Dangers – Objects like cleats, balls, pucks, and even the ground or other athletes are all a danger to your smile. A custom mouthguard keeps your teeth safe from damage during the course of the game.
- Protects Against Inside Dangers – Dangers are found inside your mouth as well. Your custom mouthguard can keep your teeth from contacting each other, meaning less risk of chips, cracks, or breaks while you play. Mouthguards also protect your teeth from damaging your tongue, cheeks, and lips.
- Protects Against Concussions – Head injuries in sports is headline news these days, and a custom-fit mouthguard can help reduce risk of head injury. Your mouthguard will spread the force of any impact to your head and may lessen your chances of suffering a concussion.
