Today, we’re talking about why you need a mouthguard for playing sports. As we gear up for a new sports season, it’s important you have the right gear to protect your smile. Here are just a few reasons you’ll want a custom-fit mouthguard:

  • It will reduce your risks for injury. The American Dental Association (ADA) has found that athletes that don’t wear mouthguards are at a much higher risk of experiencing dental damage than the ones that do. 
  • You’ll avoid damaging orthodontic work. If you wear braces and don’t wear a mouthguard, you risk damaging your braces, such as the wires or the brackets. Wearing a mouthguard will protect orthodontic work, as well as any kind of bridge dental work too.
  • It will be far more comfortable than anything you buy in the store. If you wear a custom-fit mouthguard, you are wearing one designed specifically for you. It will be easier to breathe and protect you far better.

Don’t start playing sports without the right kind of protection! Call Silver Leaf Dentistry today at 720-504-2539 for an appointment in Longmont, CO or request an appointment online.
