Avoid A Sports Injury This Spring With An Athletic Mouthguard

Spring sports athletes have either already started training or will begin training very soon. It’s an exciting time of the year. The weather is warming up and the grass is getting greener and we’re all ready to get out there and get active after a harsh winter. But don’t let your excitement distract you to the point that you are unprepared and leave your smile vulnerable to injury.

There are some sports that it is obvious you’d want to wear a mouthguard during, like football and boxing, but if there’s a risk of dental injury, you should probably take the proper measures to protect your teeth and mouth. Here are some of the most popular spring sports that we would recommend using an athletic mouthguard during:

  • Certain track and field events, like pole vaulting
  • Soccer
  • Baseball and softball
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball
  • Lacrosse

But this list is in no way exhaustive. For example, a lot of people also decide to take their first ride mountain biking or trail riding when the weather is nice. Others may participate in extreme sports like skateboarding. These activities and many others would be made much safer for your pearly whites if you wore a mouthguard during them.

Basically, if your favorite physical activity involves any of the following, you should at least consider getting a mouthguard for your smile:

  • Catching or throwing objects
  • Frequent jumping
  • Frequently changing direction

Don’t trust your smile with a boil-and-bite mouthguard that you’ll easily wear a hole in. Putting up the money for a custom mouthguard now could save you money in the long run and help you avoid a dental emergency.

Keep your gorgeous grin looking and working great by preventing dental injuries of all sorts with a custom athletic mouthguard from Gentle Family Dentists. Call 563-288-2612 or fill out our online form to book a visit with us.
