According to the Michigan High School Athletic Association, fall sports teams can start practicing soon. That also makes now a good time to get a sports mouthguard to prepare for the coming season.
A custom-fitted mouthguard, like we can make here at Newingham Dental Center, isn’t going to make you a better player … but it may help you stay in the game longer. Athletes who don’t wear mouthguard are 60 times more likely to suffer a dental injury than athletes who do.
That’s why the ADA, the AAPD, and several other professional dental organizations recommend wearing one for most sports. In the video below, Dr. Justin Newingham discusses the different kinds of mouthguards we can make at our office in Birmingham, MI.
