Whether your sports season has started or you are looking forward to your first game, we want you to be ready to play. A custom-designed athletic mouthguard can help you prevent serious dental injuries, so you can stay on the court or the field.
Keep Your Winning Smile
Wearing a mouthguard on the first is like wearing a seat belt when you get in a car. It’s not going to prevent an accident from occurring, but it can make a big difference in how you feel after the fact. By wearing a mouthguard, you are 60 times less likely to experience an oral injury.
Be Proactive About Your Teeth
You should be wearing a mouthguard (whether or not it is required) anytime you play or practice a high-impact sport, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and other professional associations. High-impact sports go beyond contact sports like football. Tennis, soccer, volleyball, softball, and baseball are all high-impact sports, too.
Breathe, Drink, Talk, & Play
Boil-and-bite mouthguards can by large and uncomfortable to wear. They can make it difficult to breathe and communicate with teammates, and they may require you to remove them to stay hydrated. A custom-designed mouthguard, which we can make at McNulty & Dancausse General Dentistry, is smaller and form-fitting. This makes it easier to breathe, drink, and speak while providing better protection than store-bought options.
