Why Should I Wear A Mouthguard?


Posted on 3/7/2022 by Evan Admin
Why Should I Wear A Mouthguard?Many individuals who can benefit from wearing mouthguards overlook its importance. Statistics show that only 41% of players use mouthguards while in the field. This is very dangerous for players who go to the field without a mouthguard as they can damage their teeth and jaw. Mouthguards are mainly meant for players and people who suffer from bruxism. This is because it prevents them from damaging and injuring their teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Wearing A Mouthguard?


If you have a mouthguard, always ensure you wear it when playing. It will help prevent tooth fracture and breakage. Mouthguards are usually made from a soft and comfortable material that acts as a shock absorber whenever you have an injury. Mouthguards will also help prevent jaw fracture and prevent you from biting your lips or tongue whenever you fall. They also help you breathe well, especially if you play high-impact sports.

How Do I Choose the Perfect Mouthguard?


Whenever you are choosing a mouthguard, there are important factors to consider. The first thing you have to decide is whether you want a custom-made or ready-made mouthguard. A ready-made mouthguard is one that you can easily get over-the-counter. It comes in many different sizes and shapes, and it can sometimes be uncomfortable if you choose it wrongly.

On the other hand, a custom-made mouthguard is found in a dentist's office and is made to fit perfectly in your teeth. So, when choosing a mouthguard, think of comfortability. Also, think of the condition of your mouth. If you have gum problems or missing teeth on one set, talk to your dentist about it so that he can determine the material of your mouthguard.
