Top 5 Reasons to Wear Custom Mouthguards for Active Play

by | Mar 27, 2023 | Dental Video, Mouthguards

Wearing mouthguards while participating in a contact sport may provide several benefits. Mouthguards are so important that the Australian Dental Association (ADA) recommends that all athletes in contact sports wear them.

Here are the top reasons you should start using a mouthguard while playing.

#1. Prevent concussions

A concussion is traumatic brain damage that can result in headaches, memory loss, poor balance, and coordination issues. Custom mouthguards can help lower the risk of a concussion.

#2. Protect against tooth fractures

In contact sports, an object could hit your teeth. They might break or fracture as a result of this. Your teeth can be shielded from this kind of damage by using a mouthguard.

#3. Protects against soft tissue injuries

Cuts to the lips, tongue, and cheeks can be prevented using mouthguards. These injuries include cuts and bruises, large wounds, and soft tissue tears in the mouth.

#4. Protect against tooth displacement

Mouthguards distribute force over all of your teeth, preventing one or more teeth from taking the brunt of a blow. They can help prevent loose teeth from becoming so loose that it needs dental work.

#5. Help prevent neck and jaw injuries

Wearing custom mouthguards can help prevent jaw fractures, which can require surgery. When a blow to the head occurs, there is little room for flexibility, so a mouthguard can provide padding and prevent the jaw from shattering.
