Dental trauma and injuries are common amongst all ages participating in recreational and competitive sports both contact and non-contact. Examples of contact sports are football and lacrosse. Skating and gymnastics are non-contact sports that can can contribute to dental trauma. The best way to protect yourself from dental emergencies is by wearing a custom fit mouthguard. Mouthguards distribute the force on contact, eliminating dental trauma and promoting dental health.

The American Dental Association (ADA) reports, “a properly fitted mouthguard is the best available protective device for reducing the incidence and severity of sports-related dental injuries”.

Call Dr. Miller today to schedule your appointment for a custom fit mouthguard to protect yourself this season.
