09 Sep Mouthguards: Protect Your Smile
Mouthguards are an Essential Part of Every Athletic Uniform
As you prepare to take on the challenges of your sport, remember to protect your teeth with a mouthguard!
Big Impacts, Big Risks
All too often the protection of your pearly whites is overlooked in favor of the latest shoes and a brightly colored kit.
Fly threads aside, imagine losing one or two of your front teeth from a sports related injury. Smiling, talking and even eating would be affected.
“The importance of a well-fitted mouthguard cannot be overstated. Sports related injuries to the face and teeth can be devastating, requiring extensive rehabilitation. We always emphasize preventative care at Integrity Dentistry. I see mouthguards, and the protection they offer, as an integral element of preventative (and wise) oral healthcare.” Dr. John Retrum
The ADA explains that a mouthguard helps cushion blows to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face or jaw and should always be worn during organized sports and even some recreational activities.
Mouthguards by Integrity Dentistry
Did you know that a football player needs different mouth protection than a basketball player? A different sport means different impact risks and different threats to your mouth, teeth, lips, tongue and jaw. At Integrity Dentistry we are able to take all of this into consideration as we create a protective mouthguard that is stylish and functional.
We offer custom-fit mouthguards for our patients, available in an assortment of colors and specific features. These protective guards are made to order: your colors and your sports’ specific needs.
Do you want to take your performance to the next level? We have partnered with Under Armour to bring you the very best in performance mouthwear. Unlike retail store mouthguards that are self-fitting, we will take an impression of your teeth and send it directly to Bite Tech’s lab where your ArmourBite Mouthwear is constructed and personalized, giving you a superior fit.
The UA Performance Mouthguard comes in several different colors, including red, black, yellow, green, purple, blue and several others. Your name and jersey number can also be included with custom personalization. Patented and scientifically proven, ArmourBite® helps athletes train harder and perform better than ever.
Play Smart, Protect your Smile!
The ADA projects that one third of all dental injuries is sport related. Believe me, this is not a statistic you want to add to your player profile. As you get ready for your sport’s season to start, don’t forget to protect your smile!
