Here are X benefits of wearing a mouthguard for contact sportsContact sports offer a great way of participating in teamwork and exercising. However, injuries are a common occurrence and one of them is dental injuries. Some of the dental injuries that you may suffer from include cracked teeth, broken and knocked-out teeth. These injuries present a serious dental problem, and they may require specialized treatment. It is therefore important to take preventive action if you play in a contact sport. One of the ways you can protect your teeth and gums is by using a mouthguard. A mouthguard offers numerous benefits that our dentists will always educate you about.

Protects against broken or knocked-out tooth

A blow to your face by an opponent's body can be painful, but the impact can also leave you without a tooth or broken tooth. A mouthguard is specially made to protect your teeth from these injuries. Therefore, before you step on the field make sure to wear a mouthguard for maximum protection. The mouthguard will cushion your teeth from impact.

Prevents cuts on cheeks and lips

One of the common injuries we see among athletes is cuts on the cheeks and lips. When playing, the sharp edges of teeth can cut through these soft tissues. You can also bite your lip, which can cause pain and discomfort. This is avoidable if you are wearing your mouthguard while engaging in contact sports.

Shields you from jaw fractures

A blow to your chin can cause a jaw fracture. the mouthguard acts as a shock absorber and will lessen the impact of the blow. You will therefore be able to avoid dislocation of the jawbone if you are wearing a mouthguard.

Visit our clinic if you require a mouthguard before your next match. You will benefit mentally as you will engage the opponent with no worries about hurting your gums or teeth. Contact us through our telephone line to schedule an appointment.
