The Importance of Mouthguards When Participating in Sports

Importance of Sports Mouthguards in East Gwillimbury Area

If you are located in East Gwillimbury, Ontario, and actively participate in high-contact sports, you must consider the benefits of wearing a sports mouthguard. Drs. Jameela Jifri and Ali Mazarei of Harvest Hills Dental Care encourage patients to think about the importance of mouthguards in sports activities for teeth protection.

Why is it Important to Wear a Mouthguard While Participating in Sports?

It is essential to wear mouthguards while participating in sports for several reasons. Below are just a couple of things to consider when thinking about the use of mouthguards during sports.

  • They can help protect your teeth from being damaged or knocked out.
  • They can help reduce the risk of concussions by absorbing some of the impacts from a fall or collision.
  • They can help keep your jaws aligned and prevent you from biting your tongue or cheeks.

Wearing a mouthguard is especially vital if you play contact sports such as football, hockey, or lacrosse. However, non-contact sports such as basketball, skateboarding, and mountain biking too can be dangerous to your teeth and mouth. It is always a smart idea to wear a mouthguard when participating in any sport.

What is the Benefit of Obtaining a Sports Mouthguard from a Dentist?

Mouthguards obtained from a dentist will be custom-fit to your mouth, making them more comfortable to wear and more effective at protecting your teeth. Dentist-obtained mouthguards will also last longer than store-bought mouthguards when cared for properly. If the mouthguard is broken or no longer fits, patients must visit the team at Harvest Hills Dental Care to obtain a new one to ensure they continue protecting the smile.
