Why Athletes Need Mouthguards
One of the best ways to prevent a dental emergency if you are active in sports is wearing a mouthguard. Mouthguards are custom made by your dentist in Renton to protect your teeth from injuries, particularly during sports. Watch this video to learn more.
Mouthguards fit snuggly over your teeth and absorb some of the force when something collides with your mouth. They can prevent injuries that need emergency dental care, including broken teeth and excessive bleeding from soft tissue injuries. Mouthguards made by your dentist in a dental office are more effective than those you can buy off the shelf since they are made to fit your mouth so that they are comfortable and fit as tightly as possible.
