Many people will spend hours selecting shoes or other gear for athletic activities. Yet they may give little if any thought to a sports mouthguard. This despite the fact that up to 39 percent of dental injuries are related to sports, according to an article in the Journal of the American Dental Association.

If you play a sport, there’s a good chance you can benefit from a mouthguard. Unlike ones purchased from a store, our dentists can fit you for a mouthguard made using impressions of your teeth. It will fit you perfectly so you won’t be tempted to leave it on the sidelines while you play.

Take our quiz to see if you should consider a mouthguard. No matter your score, you can call Carmichael Dental Care at 334-600-1423 for an appointment with one of our dentists.
