Got Teeth! Wear a mouth guard?

No matter what sport you play, Impact Dental Designs, recommend wearing a mouthguard. If you’ve got pearly whites and play a contact sport or one with the possibility of an impact through a fall or stroke, then the safest way to ensure teeth are protected is to wear custom-fitted mouthguards.

Effects of not wearing a mouthguard

Sports can be extremely fun for children, but they also put them at risk for injury. Did you know that you’re 60 times more likely to sustain damage to your teeth when not wearing a mouthguard? Teeth that have experienced any injury or repeated impacts are highly likely to suffer nerve damage and serious problems in later life.

Root canal treatments, extractions, implants and crowns are all high cost, painful and time-consuming dental treatments that no-one would choose to experience!
