Why Mouth Guards Are Important

Dental Implants in Chicago

If you live an active lifestyle or enjoy contact sports , an accident or tussle can instantly cause irrevocable damage to your teeth. By wearing a mouth guard, you can protect your teeth from these dangers.

This video highlights the importance of using a mouth guard during sports . Though a chipped or avulsed tooth often results from a check on the ice or tackle on the field, it can also occur with no other player in sight. You can suffer an injury simply by slipping from your bike or tripping during a run. A mouth guard can provide the cushion you need between your teeth and blunt force.
