Whether you’re someone who is taking things to the limit and performing outrageous on a regular basis, or you lead a more relaxed and considered lifestyle, you’ll probably get involved in an activity that can lead to possible damage inflicted on your smile. You could be taking a easy going ride on your bike at the park, playing a heated game of pickup basketball, hiking along a path, or maybe doing work around the house. Here are a few situations when you should wear a mouth guard.
Whether you’re playing a pickup game of basketball, passing the pigskin around out front with a couple of buddies, or participating in a local kickball league, you should absolutely wear a protective mouth guard. Don’t leave your smile vulnerable to damage from a foul ball, stray elbow, or wall that totally came out of nowhere.
If you’re going on a jog, taking a hike, or riding your bike, you should be wearing a protective mouth guard. This can protect your smile from possible damage from tripping, falling, or getting whacked by a branch.
You can help prevent this type of accident by visiting with your dentist. While there, your dentist can design and craft you a custom protective athletic mouth guard. Unlike the generic one size fits all mouth guards that you can buy at the sporting goods store, these custom appliances are made specifically for your teeth, providing you with higher levels of comfort and protection, allowing you to concentrate more easily on whatever you’re doing.
