Why Mouthguards Are Important in Sports?


Posted on 4/12/2021 by Tropic Dental
Why Mouthguards Are Important in Sports?Sports injuries are a reality that one faces while participating in most sports, not just sports like boxing or martial arts. A large percentage of sports injuries are to the facial region, resulting in damaged teeth that require our attention. Apart from dental damage, damaged or broken teeth can also cause flesh injuries in your mouth and can cause a lot of pain.

Understanding Sports Mouthguards


One of the best ways to prevent dental injury is to wear a sports mouthguard custom designed by our professionals. Dental injuries can be reduced considerably with the use of an appropriate mouthguard. Mouthguards generally cover the upper teeth and protect them from breakage. There are of course different kinds of mouthguards. The most popular of these are our custom-made mouthguards. These are made after taking an impression of your teeth and are made to fit your mouth structure perfectly. They are also very comfortable to wear, do not restrict breathing or your ability to speak while wearing them.

Prevent Dental Injuries


If you suffer from a dental injury after wearing a mouthguard, there is a good chance the mouthguard slipped out of position. This can happen in cases where your jaw structure changed. This is especially important for adolescents since the size and structure of their jaw are changing all the time.

It is important to wear a mouthguard that provides a good fit and one that enables free-breathing and speech. You should also visit us to change your mouthguard periodically. Wearing the same mouthguard for a long time could cause the structure to become weak. This is why you should give us a call so that our professionals can custom your mouthguard and save you from any potential sports injuries. Now you can enjoy your favorite sport without worrying about where the next impact will come from.
