Some children’s sports require participants wear an athletic mouthguard these days, but these appliances are a good idea for anyone who participates in activities that could injure the teeth or soft tissues of the mouth. In fact, the American Dental Association says that athletes who don’t wear mouth protection are as much as 60 times more likely to suffer a dental injury.
Watch this informative video from the ADA to learn more. At Edgewood Dental Care, we offer custom guards that are better fitting and far more comfortable than the type you can find at your local drugstore.
