Fall is here, so football season is well underway. During this season of the year, we unfortunately see an influx of emergency dental visits to our office. Though it’s not an infallible way, donning a suitable mouth guard could prevent a number of the dental emergency visits we receive. We want you and your children to be secure out there, so we’ve put together this data on dental mouth guards and how they can defend you and your loved ones:
Mouth guards, also referred to as sports guards and oral cavity protectors, are devices worn on top of the teeth to mitigate the impact from strikes to the face and mouth. Though these are typically not uncommon in sports that involve contact, the type of mouth guard worn is regularly not very powerful. Whether you’re playing soccer, hockey, basketball, baseball, football or an extreme sport, you should wear a great mouth guard.
So what makes for a great mouth guard? Though there are some different forms of mouth guards, the greatest-fitting and longest-lasting are mouth guards developed by a professional. (The boil-and-clamp kind are less powerful than you need a mouth guard to be.) We can create you a one-of-a-kind, super-powerful mouth guard during your next dental appointment. This kind of mouth guard will keep your pearly whites secure and will likely save you from costly emergency visits.
