Sports Mouth Guards- Protect your investmentApril 05, 2012
Getting your braces off can be one of the most momentous occasions in your life. You are so excited to show off your new smile to your friends and family. Now that your smile is perfect, you want to keep it that way for your entire life. So how do you do that? Two ways: 1. Wear your retainers as instructed by Drs Adams and Gimlen and 2. Wear a mouth guard when you participate in any sport where you could be hit in the mouth/jaw.
Mouth guards protect your teeth, lips, jaws and gums; and current research suggests that they also may aid in reducing the incidence of concussions. Anyone who plays a sport where they can suffer trauma to the mouth/jaw should have a custom fit mouth guard. This would include any sport using a ball, gymnastics, martial arts, hockey, etc…
