The importance of Sports Mouth Guard

The Dental Implant Center Blog discusses the importance of the sports mouth guard.

 

With school back in session, high school and college, athletes are heading out to practice again. Sports related injuries are inevitable. Wearing a sports mouth guard can be instrumental in preventing many of the injuries that come because of blows to the head, face, and jawbone.

 

Wearing a mouth guard while participating in your sport of choice can save you from unnecessary dental injuries, protect the jaw, prevent cuts to the cheek and tongue, and help you avoid serious injuries to the roots and bone that hold your teeth in place. Perhaps most importantly, wearing a mouth guard can also help to prevent concussions.
