Are you is your son or daughter mad about sports? If so, did you know that regular sports players and athletes are 60 times more likely to suffer from broken and damaged teeth? This is because accidental impacts even in non-impact sports such as football and athletics can cause serious and often permanent injury to people’s mouths. The good news, however, is that it is possible to keep teeth better protected on the sports field.
If you were a boxer, kickboxer, or any other kind of combat sports participant, you would think of it as silly not to wear a mouthguard. However, even in football and on the squash court, facial and mouth injuries can occur which can lead to irreversible damage and loss of teeth. This is why anyone serious about their safety when participating in a variety of sports, should always consider using a custom fabricated sports mouthguard.
