Into Sports...Don't forget your mouthguard!!

Did you know that ... Dental injuries are the most common type of orofacial injury sustained during sports; and the majority of these injuries are preventable. An athlete is 60 times more likely to sustain damage to the teeth when not wearing a protective mouthguard.
Any stock mouthguard that you would by off the counter at stores without any individual fitting, provides a low level of protection, if any. A properly fitted mouthguard signifiantly reduces the chances of sustaining a concussion if in a fall or crash.  Plus there is a chance that if the wearer is rendered unconscious, the unfitted mouthguard may lodge in the throat potentially causing an airway obstruction.

Why take the chance when you can come and see us and get the sames ones shown above!
