Dental professionals have a special role in helping patients prevent orofacial injuries, especially those that are related to sports. Many sporting injuries are dental-related. These injuries can be caused by collisions, hits to the face with sports equipment and even a fight. These incidents can cause the following dental traumas:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Lip and cheek injuries
- Root damage to the teeth
- Fractured crowns or bridgework
Who Should Wear Mouthguards?
Because of the possibility of dental injuries sustained in contact sports, it is recommended that players should have their own custom-made mouthguards. A mouthguard can save you an urgent visit to the dentist, which may result in potentially costly and invasive dental procedures.
If you are active in sports such as boxing, football, rugby, basketball, softball, volleyball, soccer, and baseball, then consider wearing a mouthguard provided by your dental team to avoid any chance of damaging your teeth. Because they are moulded and fitted at the clinic and are provided by your dentist, custom mouthguards provide the comfort and protection you need.
Additional Benefits of Mouthguards
- Help get rid of the fear about dental injuries
- Feel safe and secure while playing sports
- Help alleviate teeth grinding at night
- Help reduce the risk of concussion
- Lowers the risk of cuts and bruises in and outside the mouth
