Protect Your Teeth With Dental Mouthguards
Whether you wear braces or not, protecting your smile while playing sports is essential. Mouthguards help protect your teeth and gums from injury. If you or your children participate in any kind of full-contact sport, the American Dental Association recommends that you wear a mouthguard to prevent dental injury.
Choosing the right mouthguard is essential, as every individual is unique. There are three basic types of mouthguards:
- pre-made mouthguards
- “boil-and-bite” fitted mouthguards
- custom-made mouthguards from your dentist.
When you chose a dental mouthguard, be sure to pick one that is tear-resistant, comfortable and well fitted for your mouth, easy to keep clean, and does not prevent you from breathing properly. Your Gainesville, GA dentist at Hawkins Family Dental can show you how to wear a mouthguard properly and how to choose the right mouthguard to protect your smile.
