Custom-Fit Sports Mouth Guards
Hundreds of thousands of Americans a year sustain dental injuries during competitive play, and a large number of those injured are children.
Research has shown that wearing custom-fit sports mouth guards can reduce the risk of severe injuries. The American Dental Association (ADA) estimates that the use of mouthguards prevents approximately 200,000 injuries per year in high school and college football alone.
Anyone who plays sports or engages in athletic activity, whether competitive or not, can protect themselves by wearing an athletic mouthguard. Local Athens, GA, dentist Dr. David Allen offers custom, form-fitting mouth guards to patients of all ages.
Damaging jaw and tooth impact can be caused by everything from a direct contact to an awkward or misplaced step while running. Custom-made Intact mouthguards provide stability to your jaw and cushion the blows that can cause severe dental injuries, like broken teeth, fractures in the jaw, gum lacerations and injuries to your lips or tongue caused by your own teeth.
Growing evidence suggests that quality, properly fitting mouthguards also reduce the forces that can cause concussions and neck injuries.
