The Importance of Wearing a Mouthguard During Contact Sports

When participating in contact sports such as football, basketball, soccer, wrestling, karate, etc… you should always wear a mouthguard! Here are 5 reasons below as to what a mouthguard can help protect:

1.) Helps reduce the chance of a concussion
2.) Protects jaw joints against injury
3.) Protects soft tissues from injury
4.) Cushions teeth against impact
5.) Helps prevent injuries to the jaws and neck

We encourage you to inform us if you do participate in any such sports and we will make arrangements to have a mouthguard for you at no extra charge. If your teeth are loose or your appliance is damaged due to an accident, call our office immediately so we may advise you of the kind of treatment required.
