High School Athletes: Why You Need a Custom Mouthguard

Custom Mouthguards Dunwoody GA

High school sports like football, basketball, volleyball, and even baseball (the list could go on and on) are all activities that frequently involve orofacial injuries. All it takes is a bump to the mouth or falling down the wrong way, and the next thing you know you have a busted lip, chipped or knocked-out tooth, or even a concussion.

Fortunately, there’s one important piece of equipment that can protect you: a custom sports mouthguard.

Custom mouthguards provide a better level of protection than anything you can buy online or in the store. Since it’s custom-molded to your teeth, it stays in place when you need it most. There’s not the added risk of your appliance falling out or feeling too uncomfortable to play in.

The thick guard protects all of your upper teeth and bones. That way if your mouth is hit, there’s less of a chance to get a busted lip or knock the upper and lower teeth into one another. And consequently, a great fitting professional mouthguard can also lower your chances of getting a concussion. The durable mouthpiece provides a “buffer” that prevents your mandible (lower jaw) from hitting against the base of your skull, and thus shaking your brain.

Sports mouthguard are an affordable piece of insurance that can prevent serious injuries and medical/dental bills.

At Dunwoody Family & Cosmetic Dentistry we can customize your sports guard to match your team jersey or favorite colors. Adults can use their mouthpieces year after year, but younger patients will need occasional refits as their mouth grows. Contact us today for more information on getting one of these devices.
