We love sports! Playing and participating in sports is a great way to exercise your body, improve your balance and coordination, and make friends. In many cases, sports are also a great way to get injured if you do not take the correct precautions, and that includes wearing a mouthguard.
High-Impact Sports & Your Oral Health
What is a Mouthguard?
If you participate in any type of activity where you could be hit in the mouth or fall on your face, your teeth are vulnerable. A good-fitting mouthguard is excellent protection for your teeth and mouth and will prevent severe oral injury.
A mouthguard is a plastic appliance that you wear over your teeth during any potentially high-impact activity, including football, soccer, boxing, MMA, martial arts, baseball, wrestling, gymnastics, volleyball, skating, cycling, etc. It is designed to absorb the brunt of the impact if you are hit in the mouth or fall on your face, protecting your teeth and keeping them intact.
Where to Get a Mouthguard
Consumer Warning Drugstores and pharmacies offer over-the-counter mouthguards. However, these devices are not professional grade and may not offer sufficient protection, especially because they are not made to the precise specifications of your mouth. They are economical, but may need frequent replacement with intense use, and the cost will add up over time.
At Chichetti & Patel Dental Wellness, we will customize and fabricate a mouthguard to fit your mouth precisely and comfortably. Our mouthguards are made from the highest quality, impact-resistant materials, and are guaranteed to last when worn, cleaned, and stored correctly.
Prevent a Serious Problem with a Mouthguard
A mouth injury can be painful, embarrassing, and expensive to repair, especially if one or more teeth break off or get knocked out. Why endure such trauma when you can prevent it? A mouthguard is an easy, cost-effective way to save your oral health from a devastating injury.
