It’s Always the Season for Athletic Mouthguards

Mouthguards 3 | Dores Dental - East Longmeadow, MA

April is many things, including National Facial Protection Month. That makes this a good time to remind you of the importance of athletic mouthguards, which you can get at our East Longmeadow, MA dental office.

Mouthguards Make a Difference

Athletes who don’t wear mouthguards are 60 times more likely to suffer dental injuries than athletes who do. Think of a mouthguard like a seat belt or airbags. They may not prevent an accident from happening, but they reduce the effects of an accident if it does occur.

Make a Mouthguard Part of Your Uniform

You wouldn’t step on a baseball field without a glove. You wouldn’t step into the batter’s box without a helmet, either. By the same measure, you should be putting on a mouthguard if your sport includes:

  • Physical contact
  • Flying objects (balls, pucks, flying discs, etc.)
  • Jumping
  • Changing speeds
  • Changing directions

Custom Care is Best

Any mouthguard is better than no mouthguard. However, a custom mouthguard is smaller, more comfortable to wear, and offers better protection for your teeth and jaw.
