With everybody going back to school, we know it’s prime time for school sports. We’d like to remind everyone about the importance of protecting your teeth when you play sports of all types. Many people think that mouthguards are only for major contact sports like football, but the reality is that your teeth need protection in all sports! Not only do mouthguards protect your smile, but studies have shown that they also can cushion the shock from a bump to the head.
Wearing braces? Never fear, there are mouthguards made specifically for braces that allow your teeth to move, won’t damage your brackets and wires, and still do the job! Sports related dental injuries can be very expensive to treat, so save yourself and wear a mouthguard. Sports injuries can happen in the blink of an eye and the repercussions can be lasting damage to the teeth, lips and cheeks. It may take a little time to get used to wearing a mouthguard, but you’ll be glad you did. Stop by any of our offices in Palmdale, Lancaster, Valencia, Tehachapi, Agoura Hills and Santa Clarita and ask about a mouthguard for your braces.
