5 Reasons to Use Mouth Guards in Sports


1.       It is proven that using a mouth guard helps to prevent over 200,000 sport-related injuries per year.

2.      Mouth guards protect against the following types of injuries: chipped or broken teeth, injuring soft tissue (cheeks or lips), fracturing the jaw, and damage to previous dental work.

3.       Generic mouth guards are available at drugstores but getting one that is custom made to fit by your dentist will be more comfortable and offer more protection.

 4.      The American Dental Association estimates that approximately one third of all dental injuries are sports related.

5.      Any person playing a sport (both children and adults) should wear a mouth guard.  It is especially important if you play contact sports like football, hockey, and boxing.  You should also wear one when playing any sport in which you could get hit in the mouth by another player or ball, such as: basketball, volleyball, baseball, soccer, and wrestling.
