What are the benefits of sports mouthguards?
If you are located in the East Gwillimbury, Ontario, community and beyond and are interested in playing sports, the team at Harvest Hills Dental Care may strongly suggest the fabrication and use of a sports mouthguard. Sports mouthguards are appliances worn over the teeth during involvement in certain sports to protect the teeth and gums from injury. In some instances, a blow to the face or mouth can cause a chipped or even knocked-out tooth, and using a sports mouthguard can significantly reduce one’s risk of serious damage to the smile. Our dentists educate patients at the office to help them better understand the benefits of using a customized sports mouthguard when involved in high-contact sports.
What are the benefits of sports mouthguards from your dentist?
Mouthguards from your dentist offer a number of benefits over store-bought and generic mouthguards.
- Dentists are able to customize the fit of a mouthguard, allowing for greater comfort and protection during physical activity.
- Dentist-made mouthguards are stronger and more durable than those purchased over the counter.
- Our mouthguards, custom-made for patients, can last several seasons depending on the material used, while store-bought guards typically need to be replaced after only one season.
- Dental mouthguards provide superior protection against teeth or jaw impacts that could lead to serious injury. This makes them ideal for contact sports such as football or boxing, where collisions are common.
