Did you know that the Canadian Dental Association highly recommends that individuals who play contact sports wear a sports mouthguard to minimize their risk of injury? This is because dental injuries are some of the most common injuries sustained during athletic activities. In fact, according to the American Dental Association, approximately 39% of all dental injuries are sports-related.
There are many benefits associated with wearing a professional sports mouthguard, including:
- A reduced risk of sustaining a dental injury
- A reduced risk of concussion
- A reduced risk of developing TMJ.
How is a professional sports mouthguard made & why is it a better option than a store-bought mouthguard?
A professional sports mouthguard is made from a high-quality, durable material that will protect your teeth from impact. It is important to note that not all mouthguards are created equal. In fact, over-the-counter mouthguards may actually do more harm than good as they can cause you to bite down harder and put more pressure on your teeth.
In addition, a professional sports mouthguard has the potential to last you for several seasons and it's customized to fit your mouth perfectly. It is important to be fitted for a mouthguard by a dentist or other medical professional to ensure that it fits properly and provides the best possible protection.
