Athletic Mouthguards in Texarkana, TX

Athletic Mouthguards

Nobody wants to lose their teeth while playing sports, and yet, athletes still neglect to wear their mouthguards. Common complaints are that mouthguards are uncomfortable, inhibit breathing, and make speech difficult. A custom-made mouthguard, on the other hand, will fit like a glove and eliminate the risk of permanently damaging your smile!

Still don’t want to wear a mouthguard? Here are some disconcerting statistics that may convince you otherwise:

  • 40% of all sports injuries involve the face
  • 13-19% of all dental injuries are sports-related
  • Wearing a mouthguard reduces your risk of concussion by 50%
  • Once schools began requiring mouthguards, the number of injuries dropped by 200,000 per year

The American Dental Association and the Academy of Sports Dentistry recommend athletic mouthguards for a variety of sports, including baseball, basketball, cycling, hockey, gymnastics, lacrosse, martial arts, skateboarding, soccer, softball, volleyball, wrestling, and more. As your general dentist, Dr. Lippian can custom design a mouthguard that suits your unique needs. This relatively small expense could save you from sporting a toothless grin!
