Should You Be Wearing a Mouthguard?
If you love to play sports or rollerblade and bike, then consider asking your dentist about a custom mouthguard at your next dental check-up. Mouthguards can protect your teeth, tongue, and gums in case of an accident during your sport activities. Watch the short video to see why it is necessary to visit your dental office in Lake Stevens, WA to receive a mouthguard.
Contact sports, such as football, or non-contact sports like rollerblading can all lead to accidental tooth loss or cuts on your tongue and gums. Wearing a mouthguard, however, can keep your teeth and gum tissues protected against these accidents. A custom mouthguard, made at your dental office, is molded and fit to your teeth. This makes a more secure and protective layer over your teeth. At your next dental examination, speak with your dentist about receiving a custom mouthguard.
