If you are involved in athletics and aren’t wearing a sports mouthguard, you’re putting your teeth in danger. A surprising number of dental injuries are related to sports – up to 39 percent, according to the Journal of the American Dental Association.
A custom-made mouthguard does a better job of protecting your teeth than a store-bought one because it fits so much better. Because the “boil-and-bite” mouthguards sold at sporting goods stores often don’t fit very well, it’s tempting to leave them on the sidelines when you play.
Take our quiz to see if you need a sports mouthguard. No matter what score you get, we encourage you to speak to one of our dentists to see if you’d benefit from a sports mouthguard. Call North Bay Dental at 262-417-7326 today to make an appointment.
