Don’t Lose a Tooth!

Every year over 3 million teeth get knocked out playing recreational and sports activities. Any activity that involves a ball, or a bat can cause a dental injury. As can the blunt force from an elbow or a foot. And don’t forget about recreational activities that involve motion, like mountain biking, inline skating, skateboarding, even horseback riding.

In fact, the American Dental Association now lists over 30 sports and recreational activities that participants should consider wearing a sports mouth guard to protect their teeth.

Whether you’re a middle aged weekend warrior playing a little pick-up basketball or a young extreme stunts prodigy, anyone who is out there staying active and playing can benefit from the additional protection of a custom made sports mouthguard.
