Why Athletic Mouthguards Are A Must
Life comes at you fast, especially when you are athletic. You wouldn’t want to drop the ball (so to speak) when it comes to protectig your smile. Unlike a boil and bite mouthguard from the sporting goods store, an athletic mouthguard from a trained oral healthcare professional offers much more reliable and comfortable protection from serious injury.
What makes ours different? It will be measured precisely to fit your mouth perfectly so it won’t slip or shift when you’re trying to focus. As such, you will be able to communicate clearly and remain safe throughout the duration of your activity.
Which Athletes Need A Custom Mouthguard
Let’s get something straight: all athletes should be aware of the risks that their sport could pose for their health. One’s oral health is just one piece of that larger picture.
It probably won’t surprise you to learn that some sports are a little more hazardous to your smile than others.
Here are the players who definitely want to consider coming to Attleboro Family Dental for a custom athletic mouthguard this summer!
The great American pastime is the type of sport that’s played almost year-round these days thanks to travel teams and indoor training facilities.
That’s great if you love the game, but nothing can destroy your smile and threaten your oral health quite like a baseball or a bat flying at your mouth at crazy speeds.
That’s why you need a perfect-fitting mouthguard to protect you against the threats that await you at the ballbark.
If Mr. Miyagi were here, he would tell you that one-on-one combat sports, like most martial arts, will put your teeth and gums directly in the path of a hand, elbow, foot, or knee. There’s just no avoiding that kind of contact.
As such, the logical way to defend your mouth from unexpected injury is a mouthguard that won’t shift around on you, leaving parts of your mouth exposed and vulnerable and breaking your concentration on the battle going on around you.
Field hockey, like its winter cousin, ice hockey, will put your smile at risk due to the tools used during the game.
With the puck or ball being repeatedly launched into the air, your mouth can become an inadvertant target.
The same is true in regard to the assortment of hockey sticks and elbows in close proximity to your face at all times. Again, a good mouthguard can help you avoid bodily harm.
The whole idea behind this sport centers on repeated blunt jabs to your opponent’s face. Both of you should be wearing a high-quality mouthguard so that if there is anything “knocked-out” it won’t be teeth!
