Reasons You Should Use Sports Mouthguards


If you are an athlete practicing a contact sport, like American football, rugby or boxing, you probably have heard about the mouthguards. If you don’t, then let me quickly explain what a mouthguard is: a mouthguard is a protector used to protect the teeth and the jaw for athletes that are at risk of receiving any kind of impact in this area. The Bryan Dental in Bryan and College Station area is conveniently located near to the Briarcrest Walmart is the best option available and, is the best  expert  near you  and best Dental Care  for the children, near you and  for any type of  Dental Emergencies .

A mouthguard must be an integral part of the athlete’s uniform, but sometimes they refuse to use them for several reasons: comfortability, bulkiness, and difficulty to breath are some reasons. Nevertheless, we list here only ten reasons for using sports mouthguards:

Your teeth are an integral part of your skull. They even have nerves directly connected to them. That is why, if you receive a severe impact directly on them, you could end up with a fracture. The images of a dental fracture are gruesome, and the treatment can be very expensive and extensive. 

Teeth do not grow back after you get your permanent set, and even if you are a child, fracturing your teeth could have terrible consequences for you in the future. A mouthguard distributes the force of the impact uniformly along its structure, protecting your teeth from the strong force of the impact. This could save you thousands of dollars and years of dental treatment.

Protection against tooth displacement

If you are lucky enough not to break your tooth when you are not using any dental protection, then a tooth displacement or luxation could also happen. In this case, one tooth (or some tooth) could be displaced. In this case, the whole line of your set of teeth could be compromised, and the only way could be surgery. A mouthpiece will also protect you from this terrible injury by maintaining your teeth in position.
