Any athlete who participates in sports where their mouth may come in contact with other players, hard surfaces or equipment should wear a mouthguard during every practice or match. Many patients are shocked to find out that the leading causes of tooth loss for patients under the age of 25 are sports injuries, so it’s especially important that our young patients have the right mouthguards when they start engaging in athletics. Our custom mouthguards offer superior comfort compared with those store-bought varieties available, so please don’t hesitate to ask about our custom sports mouth guards during your next appointment with Dr. Hattaway.
Sports mouth guards fit over your teeth to protect your mouth from injury. By using an athletic mouth guard, you can prevent knocked-out and chipped teeth as well as injury to the soft tissues of the mouth such as the tongue, lips, cheeks and gums. Additionally, sports mouth guards help prevent neck injury and keep your airways open so that you can breath more easily during athletic activities.
Sports mouth guards are recommended for anyone who participates in a recreational activity, and they are often required for individuals who play high-contact sports, such as wrestling, football, hockey, rugby, soccer, basketball or baseball.
