April is National Facial Protection Month. And since the Spring sports season is underway and summer sports aren’t far behind, it is a good time to get athletic mouthguards for all the athletes in your family.
You should come to Dossett Dental to protect those winning smiles.
Reduce Your Risk of Injury
Athletes who don’t wear athletic mouthguards are 60 times more likely to suffer dental injuries than athletes who do. We can certainly treat dental emergencies, but we would prefer it if you avoided a broken or lost tooth.
Your mouthguard is only beneficial if you wear it while practicing or playing your sport of choice. Custom mouthguards, like the ones we make at our practice, are smaller and molded to fit your teeth, making them more comfortable than the bulky mouthguards found in stores.
Get the Best Protection
A custom fit also means better protection for your teeth. It’s similar to how the five-point harnesses used by professional racecar drivers offer better protection than the standard seat belts in your family car. Any mouthguard provides a level of protection, but a better fit means more benefits.
