Fall is here, and football season is well underway. During this period of the year, we unfortunately see an increase of emergency visits to our office. Though it’s not a surefire method, wearing a suitable mouth guard could prevent numerous of the oral emergency dental visits we receive. We want you to be secure out there, so we’ve put together this data on oral mouth guards and how they can protect you:

Mouth guards, also defined as sports guards and oral cavity protectors, are devices worn on the teeth to hamper the impact from strikes to the face and mouth. Though these are typically commonplace in sports that involve contact, the type of mouth guard worn is often not very safe. Whether you’re playing soccer, basketball, baseball, football or an extreme sport, you should wear an awesome mouth guard.

So what constitutes an awesome mouth guard? Though there are some different forms of mouth guards, the greatest-fitting and longest-lasting are mouth guards created by a professional. (The boil-and-chomp kind are less powerful than you need a mouth guard to be.) We can develop you a unique, super-powerful mouth guard during your next oral checkup. This kind of mouth guard will keep your pearly whites protected and will probably save you from emergency visits.
