As the popularity of competitive sports increases among young people, so does the number of sports injuries. By wearing protective sports gear, young athletes can protect themselves against mishaps on the sports field. Many coaches recommend the use of sports mouthguards for protection against oral injuries. If you’re an avid sports player and want added protection for your teeth, you can contact Kingsgate Dental in Kirkland to have a quality sports mouthguard customized for your use.
Whether you play competitively or for recreational purposes, there’s always the chance of having an accident that can damage your jaw, mouth, or teeth. A hard collision or blow to your mouth could result in fractured teeth, lacerations to gum tissue, a dislocated jaw, or other oral injuries. Mouthguards help soften the impact of trauma to your mouth, jaw, gums, or teeth to protect them against severe damage or harm.
Sports mouthguards have been proven highly effective in minimizing the effect of dental trauma on the sports field. Basketball, football, soccer, volleyball, boxing, and ice hockey are a few examples of contact sports that can cause oral injuries. In an accident, a sports mouthguard could save you dental bills worth thousands of dollars.
Sports mouthguards’ costs differ depending on the quality of the product you choose.
With a sports mouthguard, you can protect your beautiful smile as you play and enjoy your sport to the fullest. To learn more about our custom-designed mouthguards, contact Dr. Anne Kelley from Kingsgate Dental in Kirkland at (425) 385-0080.
