The warmer temperatures tend to call our names to the great and wonderful outdoors this spring season. Sports teams are beginning to form, as trees are formed with their green leaves popping out of the bare winter branches. It’s a wonderful time of year of newness.
If you are your little ones are planning to try out a new sport, don’t forget your protective wear for your family’s teeth. Often times, new sports require padding, gloves, guards, helmets and so on. What’s often over looked is your teeth.
A custom-made mouthpiece is ideal for protecting the integrity of your teeth. According to dentalcare.com, more than 5 million teeth are avulsed each year and 13-39% of those are during sports related activities. A custom-made mouthpiece has its many advantages.
- A mouthpiece is only effective if it’s worn! A custom mouthpiece will feel comfortable to wear.
