Concerned About Knocking Out a Tooth During Sports Activities?
Are you aware that 5 million teeth are knocked out yearly in the U.S.? Many sports can be dangerous without the proper protective equipment. The one-size-fits-all mouthguards seen in stores don’t fit well. Breathing can be difficult while running during sports with this type of mouthguard. But mouthguards that are custom-made by your dentist fit nicely, protect well, and may be worn for any sport. The American Dental Association advises wearing customized mouthguards for the following sports: Basketball, boxing, hockey, football, gymnastics, martial arts, racquetball, skateboarding, skiing, skydiving, soccer, surfing, volleyball, weight lifting, and wrestling.
