Get An Athletic Mouthguard For Fall Sports! [BLOG]

Now that the school year has begun, you might have a young athlete in the family, or perhaps you’re one yourself!

That means it’s also the start of fall sports conditioning, and our team at Stephen K. Williams DDS & Associates in Bicknell, IN wants to make sure your beautiful teeth stay safe!

You Need An Athletic Mouthguard For Fall Sports!

When it comes to athletic equipment, uniforms, and gear, proper fit is crucial to safety and performance.

That’s why a customized mouthguard from your Bicknell dentist is superior to anything you’ll find at a sporting goods store! Here are a few other benefits:

*It Gives You Better Protection*

There’s a reason baseball and football players wear helmets. It’s too easy to get hit in the head by a bat, ball, or another player.

If the helmet you wore didn’t fit snugly, you’re not getting the right protection against potentially disastrous blunt force.

It’s the same with a mouthguard. If it’s shifting around all the time because it’s too big, your teeth and gums may not be fully covered and cushioned when it matters most!

That means you risk damaging, breaking, or even losing teeth, which results in painful, expensive dental procedures.

*It’s Much More Comfortable*

Gloves, helmets, shoes, or any other piece of athletic gear needs to fit properly, or you’re definitely going to pay for it one way or another. Anything that’s slipping or sliding around puts you at risk for tripping, falling, or getting hit.

You might get sores, blisters, or even get injured during a game.

Because mass-produced mouthguards aren’t designed to fit you specifically, you’ll experience the same distraction and discomfort that you would if your shoes were too big, for example.

But with accurate measurements taken at the dentist office, your mouthguard will be completely customized to fit you, and you only. That’s why they’re far more comfortable than a mouthguard from a store.

*It’s Better For Breathing & Communicating*

During any sport, no matter the kind of impact or speed it demands, you need to be able to breathe easily. This is just as much about safety and performance as it is communication. You should be able to talk to your teammates and coaches, and that’s hard to do when you’re wearing a big, bulky mouthguard.

Ours are sleek and custom-fitted over your teeth so you can do what you’re supposed to do during a game, yet you’ll still have the durability and cushion to withstand an impact to the mouth, jaw, and head.
