PRESCOTT ATLETHIC MOUTHGUARDS
Prescott Dental Arts offers Athletic Mouthguards for your active family members in Prescott, Arizona
Many of our patients here in Prescott are very active in athletic and other vigorous physical activities. They are wise and don’t engage in these activities without the proper protective gear, such as a helmet and pads; but most of them neglect a vitally important piece of safety equipment when gearing up, and that’s a sport mouthguard. The American Dental Association recommends mouth protectors for anyone participating sports or other activities that pose the risk of injury or a fall, but it only takes a little common sense to know that an athletic mouthguard is necessary to fully protect your mouth during athletic and potentially injurious activities.
Protecting your Whole Mouth
Typically worn over the upper teeth, a custom sport mouthguard created by Prescott Dental Arts will protect your teeth from cracking, breaking or being completely dislodged if you experience a blow to the mouth or a hard fall. It will also help prevent cuts to the lips, tongue, cheeks, and gums.
More Than Mouth Protection
Some studies indicate that a sport mouthguard can help reduce the forces of a blow to the face or head, which may help prevent concussions. Sport mouthguards can also be designed to help keep your jaw in a normal position to reduce strain on your temporomandibular (TMJ) joints. A properly positioned jaw endures less stress during athletic activity, and this produces less stress on the rest of your body, which improves your strength, endurance and concentration.
