Playing sports is great for your health, however, steps must be taken in order to avoid injuries. Just like it’s important to wear a helmet to protect your head from injuries, you must wear a mouthguard to protect your mouth.
What Are Sports Mouthguards?
Sports mouthguards are designed to be worn while playing sports or doing physical activities where accidental impact to your mouth may likely occur.
You need to wear them over your teeth to protect them from injuries or damage. These appliances also protect you against injuries to the lips, cheeks, or tongue. If you have braces or any other dental appliances or restorations, custom sports mouthguards may be a better option for you.
Sports mouthguards are an essential piece of equipment for athletes playing sports like baseball, soccer, football, hockey, and others. Even if you are participating in other activities like skateboarding, mountain biking, and gymnastics, you should wear them to save yourself from oral injuries.
