We remain hopeful that life will return to normal, and that includes sports. A lot can happen between now and then as we’ve seen, but it’s better to be prepared to play. That includes having an athletic mouthguard, which we can make for you.
Protect Your Winning Smile
Athletes who don’t wear mouthguards are 60 times more likely to suffer dental injuries than athletes who don’t. Think of mouthguards like you would a seat belt. The seat belt won’t stop an accident from happening, but it can make it much more likely that you minimize harm if one does happen.
Customize Your Fit
The American Dental Association, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and more professional dental organizations recommend wearing a mouthguard during all high-impact sports (e.g. football, volleyball, and tennis). The ADA and AAPD also recommend custom-fitted mouthguards over the boil-and-bite mouthguard that you find in stores. To stick to our seat belt comparison, custom mouthguards are like the five-point harnesses that NASCAR drivers use, while boil-and-bite mouthguards are like the seat belts in your family vehicle.
How To Get Your Perfect Fit
Schedule an appointment at Carmichael Dental Care. We can take a mold of your teeth, which is used to make a custom-designed athletic mouthguard for you. This should be worn anytime you practice or compete.
