Questions about Sports Mouthguards
Burke, Fairfax and Fairfax Station, Virginia
Who should consider a sports mouthguard?
Most athletes can benefit from a protective sports mouthguard. Mouthguards are often associated with sports such as football, hockey, and wrestling, but can also benefit athletes in sports including basketball, baseball, gymnastics, and nearly everything in between. If you are engaged in a sport, talk to Fairfax dentist, Dr. Pamela Marzban about the potential benefits of a mouthguard today.
Why are mouthguards important?
According to the American Dental Association, sports mouthguards prevent an estimated 200,000 injuries in high school and college sports alone. This is to say nothing of the thousands of injuries prevented in both professional and amateur sports. Your jaw and teeth are vulnerable to impact, and even a small impact can have long term consequences including TMJ, cracked teeth, or missing teeth. Protecting your mouth with a mouthguard helps prevent unnecessary injuries from occurring.
Why not just choose a mouthguard from a sporting goods store?
Sport mouthguards from a sporting goods store are sufficient for some pursuits, but pale in comparison to professional mouthguards. Mouthguards offered through our office are customized to fit exactly into your mouth, providing you the protection you require. Even the boil and bite mouthguards offered at retail stores cannot begin to provide the support and security offered by our professional sports mouthguards.
What kind of mouthguard does Dr. Marzban offer?
Dr. Marzban offers Intact mouthguards, a comfortable, tasteless, acrylic mouthguard that comes in various strengths and sizes depending on your sport. Dr. Marzban has found that these mouthguards offer superior support and protection and, because they are customized for each patient, are the optimal solution for protecting your jaw and teeth no matter what sport you engage in.
