Get An Athletic Mouthguard For Spring! [BLOG]

For many athletes, spring training has already begun.

Your friends at LakeCrest Dental are making sure your smile is safe!

There’s always a risk for injury with any physical activity. But that’s just a price you pay when you participate in a sport. Whether you’re the one playing, or your child is the athlete, you do all you can to keep that risk low.

When it comes to spring sports, your smile can be at a particularly high risk, so wearing a mouthguard should be part of that safety effort. You could:

  • Get struck in the mouth with a ball
  • Slip out on the field or on the court
  • Collide with another player
  • Fall onto a hard surface

But a generic mouthguard from a sporting goods store isn’t a good idea. You should trust your Sand Springs dentist to provide maximum protection against injuries to your teeth and gums.

The Advantages Of Customized Athletic Mouthguards

Here are just a few advantages to the customized fit you get with a professionally-made athletic mouthguard:

*Protect Yourself From Oral & Bodily Injuries*

Obviously, protective gear an athlete wears is meant to reduce the risk for injuries. A mouthguard is no different.

So just like any other piece of equipment, it needs to fit well. Gloves, pads, helmets, and mouthguards that slip and slide around can’t protect a player when it counts.

For the best protection, the gear needs to fit perfectly, and that’s what our athletic mouthguards are measured for.

*Get Your Money’s Worth*

Parents know better than anyone that if something isn’t comfortable, kids just won’t wear it. So even though you might save money on a store-bought mouthguard, that money is wasted if it stays at the bottom of your kid’s gym bag!

If that’s the case, there’s no chance of protecting their teeth when it matters most. Our custom-made mouthguards will fit comfortably, so you’ll get your money’s worth.

*Breathe & Speak More Easily*

Team sports require players to communicate with each other. It’s hard to do that with a bulky, shifting mouthguard that doesn’t fit very well. It’s also harder to breathe while wearing a mouthguard that’s too big.

Because our dentists take meticulous measurements to create mouthguards, the fit will be snug but comfortable, allowing for easy breathing and speaking during a game.

*Avoid Costly Dental Treatment Later*

It’s not that we don’t love seeing our patients, but for the sake of your smile, we’d prefer that it’s for routine cleanings and exams because that means your mouth is healthy.

We also know that injured teeth present a financial burden, especially because they happen suddenly and can create undue stress when it comes to covering those unexpected treatment costs.

Not just that, but dental damage often requires more complicated restorative procedures.

So a well-made mouthguard can save your dental health as well as your family’s budget!
