Three Benefits Of Wearing Mouth Guards During Contact Sports

Posted on 9/19/2022 by Barbara Ketchum
Three Benefits Of Wearing Mouth Guards During Contact SportsWhile mouthguards will not always stop injuries from happening, they will disperse the forces that come from a crash. Dentist always recommend when playing contact sports that patients wear mouthgaurds.

The goal of mouthgaurds is to lower the amount of force transferred to the teeth to a level below the point at which the tooth will be damaged. A mouth guard that is custom-fitted to the wearer is the most effective means of safeguarding against injuries of this kind.

When you play a contact sport, donning a mouth guard may not only protect your teeth and any dental treatment you have had, but it can also prevent you from more severe injuries. A good mouth guard can take the impact of a hit to the jaw, protecting the wearer against serious injuries such as a broken jaw, whiplash, spinal injuries, and bleeding in the brain.

Mouth Guards Can Prevent Serious Injuries To Your Teeth

If you wear a mouth guard, it may help prevent your teeth from being broken, chipped, or even completely knocked out in the event of an accident.

They help to disperse the pressures that are created by a blow to the head, and they protect your tongue, lips, and face, as well as the face of your kid. Even though a mouth guard cannot entirely prevent a concussion from happening, it may minimize the severity of the symptoms that are experienced in the event that a concussion does take place.
