Our Doral dentists consistently treat oral injuries that could have easily been prevented by wearing a mouth guard. In fact, one study showed that 75 percent of high school injuries occurred in students who were not wearing a guard.
That is so many injuries, painful days and visits to the dentist that could have spared.
A mouth guard is a protective device (usually plastic or laminate) that covers the teeth and gums. It is worn in contact and high-impact sports to protect the teeth, arches, lips, gums, and jaw.
Types of dental injuries that mouth guards protect against:
If you play contact or high-impact sports, don’t overlook your need for a mouth guard! It is definitely worth it to invest in a guard and wear one to prevent an injury to the teeth, mouth, and jaw.
