When you first venture into playing a specific sport, taking care of your teeth may be one the last things that will come to your mind. After all, the enjoyment and rush of playing your favourite sport will be at the top of your mind – who wants to worry about their teeth in the middle of playing, anyway? However, if there is a risk of getting your mouth or head area injured while playing, you will definitely have to worry (even for a bit) about and take better care of your teeth.
Do you play contact sports such as rugby, basketball, football, or boxing? During these games, the action can be so intense that injuries may be the norm, regardless of whether the physical trauma is intentional or accidental. While getting intensely physical with other players cannot be avoided in these games, you can still protect your smile with the help of sports mouth guards. Choose mouth guards which are designed according to your specific mouth measurements for a perfect fit, so you can be assured that your teeth are completely secure during your game.
The mouthguards are used to prevent your upper and lower teeth from coming into a jarring impact against one another during the game, which may cause teeth injuries or damage. The guards are also there to protect your tongue from being bitten accidentally. The soft tissues of your inner mouth and gums are also protected with the help of your mouth guards, bringing you more peace of mind as you fully enjoy your game.
