As adults and children from across the country gear up to play their favorite sports, it’s important to remember a vital piece of protective equipment: an athletic mouthguard. Proven to help prevent a variety of severe orofacial injuries across a broad spectrum of activities, custom athletic mouthguards are just as important as the helmets and pads you wear while you play. At Anderson Family Dental in Colorado Springs, CO, Dr. Erick T. Anderson and Dr. Richard L. Anderson offer families from throughout the area an extensive selection of preventive dentistry solutions, including custom athletic mouthguards.
Why Choose Custom Athletic Mouthguards?
While it is true that you can find athletic mouthguards on the shelves at your local pharmacy or sporting goods store, these generic oral appliances simply cannot defend against injury as effectively as a customized mouthguard from your dentist. Because a custom athletic mouthguard is precisely modeled to fit your unique dentition, it is substantially more comfortable and will not shift in the mouth during rigorous gameplay.
According to the ADA, custom athletic mouthguards are strongly recommended for use in the following sports and recreational activities, among others:
- Baseball, basketball, softball, and racquetball
- Soccer, football, squash, and field hockey
- Weightlifting, boxing, and wrestling
- Surfing, water polo, and skateboarding
- Equestrian events
- Ice hockey and inline skating
- Extreme sports
With a custom sports mouthguard from Anderson Family Dental, you can protect your smile from potentially serious injuries, including knocked out teeth, partially dislodged teeth, soft tissue injuries, broken jaws, and even concussions.
