Why do I need a sports mouthguard?
Playing any sport, whether football, boxing, or another, can be pretty intense. In this case, a sports mouthguard is a vital piece of protective gear. Sports mouthguards act as a cushion, absorbing impact forces that could lead to dental trauma, broken teeth, or soft tissue damage. Due to how valuable sports mouthguards can be, many organizations require a sports mouthguard as part of the uniform.
What are the benefits of using a custom mouthguard?
At Grafton Dental Care, we encourage athletic patients to use a custom mouthguard to avoid trauma and permanent damage to teeth. A custom athletic mouthguard will fit over teeth and gums snugly with quality material, offering better protection than anything in stores. Some great benefits of mouthguards include:
- Comfortable wear
- Protect teeth from fracture
- Reduced risk of concussion
- Natural breathing and speaking
- Meeting sports regulations
How do I take care of and clean my athletic mouthguard?
Not taking proper care of your athletic mouthguard can put you at risk of oral health issues. If you have an athletic mouthguard, rinsing the mouthguard with water is a great start but not enough. An athletic mouthguard should be brushed with toothpaste regularly to remove built-up debris and rinsed. It is also important to avoid using hot water on the mouthguard to prevent warping, and a good idea to keep it in a protective case when not worn.Contact Us
