Before Summer/Fall Sports Abuse Your Teeth, Get An Athletic Mouthguard!

Are you planning on participating in any sports this summer? While summer sports are great for your health and well-being, unfortunately, they can be very damaging to your teeth. This summer, before you sign yourself or your children up for your favorite Roswell sports teams, be sure to visit your dentist Wyman Martin, DDS, at The Martin Dental Center For Oral Health and Aesthetics to get a custom athletic mouthguard. One very important piece of sports equipment--you won't want to play without it.

The Importance of a Mouthguard

Whether you are playing rough contact sports or simply playing games for fun with friends, the truth is that every time you play sports in Roswell you put yourself at risk of an emergency visit to the dentist. Not only could you knock out your teeth with a fast moving ball or by colliding with another player, but you could even trip and fall simply walking across the field. A mouthguard protects your teeth so you can play without worry, knowing that your teeth will always be protected.

Types of Mouthguards

There are three main types of mouth guards. Boil and bite mouth guards are the cheapest, but they also provide the least amount of protection as they are not custom fitted to your mouth. Two better options include custom mouth guards made by a dentist, either in the office or as prescribed in a professional laboratory. Both of these types of mouth guards offer superior fit for excellent protection.

This summer, don't leave your teeth at risk by participating in sports without the proper equipment. Visit Dr. Martin at The Martin Dental Center For Oral Health and Aesthetics in Roswell to get a custom fit athletic mouthguard today. The time and money you spend now will surely pay off when you avoid having expensive medical bills or missing or broken teeth later. Call today.
