Protect Your Teeth to Stay in the Game (quiz)

Athletic mouthguards have made a world of difference for millions of athletes … and they could help millions more if more people wore mouthguards like they should.

Back in the 1950s, conservative estimates were that 1 in 4 football injuries affected the injured players’ oral health. Today, less than 1 percent of football injuries are dental in nature.

Yet, more than 3 million teeth are knocked out annually during youth sports. Statistically, baseball and basketball have become the sports that are most likely to cause those kinds of injuries.

There’s a reason the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry both recommend wearing mouthguards for nearly all sports, not just the ones in which mouthguard are required.

It’s also why we make mouthguards for our patients at Newingham Dental Center in Birmingham, MI. To find out if a mouthguard is recommended for you or someone in your family, take our short quiz below.
