Athletic Mouth Guards
Greenwood, SC Dentist
Playing sports requires protective gear, and an athletic mouth guard is a vital piece of equipment. An estimated 13-39% of all dental injuries occur while playing sports. Over 200,000 teeth and mouth injuries have been prevented by mouth guards being made mandatory in American football.
Tooth and mouth injuries do not end with contact sports. Recent studies have found that athletes who play sports like basketball are just as likely to suffer injuries to the face, mouth, and teeth. Sports involving balls, hoops, goals, and other playing surfaces can all lead to mouth injuries from contact.
Protecting your teeth with an athletic mouthguard is vital to protecting your oral health. Dr. Christopher T. Griffin will custom fit a guard to keep you safe. Contact our office today.
