Whether you embrace an active lifestyle that involves some form of contact sport or you tend to grind you teeth – the saving grace of a custom mouth guard is something you may very well want to consider.
Small Piece of Protection, Big Help
Although having a tooth (or multiple teeth) knocked out isn’t something anyone ever thinks will happen to them, it does to many people, which leaves you as one of those people at risk.
Taking away that risk will help offer you peace of mind and even perhaps be able to stay more focused on your sport of choice – making this small piece of protection truly a big help in more than just one way.
Common Sports for Custom Mouth Guards
Common sports that people choose to invest in a custom mouth guard include: soccer, hockey, skateboarding, gymnastics, football, basketball, baseball, and even mountain biking. These are the most common sports that involve oral injuries, so don’t become a statistic by opting out of mouth gear protection.
Does a Mouth Guard Protect More Than Just Your Teeth?
Yes! Depending on if you choose to get just a top mouth guard, or opt for both top and bottom guards, it/they can help protect against cut lips, broken teeth and slashed gums …just to name a few.
Aside from sport, custom mouth guards can also be created for those who grind their teeth, causing your smile to wear down and your enamel along with it, as well as sensitivity to occur.
