Whether you are an athlete or love someone who is, you know that it’s not a matter of if you will return to the field or the court. It’s a matter of when. While that may not come as quickly as you would like, when that day arrives, we want you to be prepared.
That’s why we hope you are finding ways to stay in shape for your sport of choice and taking steps to avoid injuries. That includes getting a custom-designed athletic mouthguard at Accura Dental.
Stay In The Game
Athletes who don’t wear mouthguards are 60 times more likely to suffer dental injuries than athletes who do. We want you to compete for as long as possible. While a mouthguard won’t stop a collision or a fall from happening, it could be the difference in losing a tooth and having to recover or staying on the field.
You Deserve The Best
Both the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend wearing a mouthguard for all high-impact sports. They also go a step further to recommend custom-made mouthguards over bulky mouthguards that you’ll find in stores. A few examples of high-impact sports are football, field hockey, gymnastics, soccer, and tennis.
Comfort Is Key
Custom-mouthguards are molded to fit your teeth. As a result, they can be smaller and still provide better protection than store-bought mouthguards. Where bulky mouthguards can be uncomfortable and interfere with your breathing, custom mouthguards are easier to wear and allow you to breathe, drink water (remember to stay hydrated), and talk to teammates and coaches.
