Mouthguards for sports are an essential part of the uniform when it comes to any type of sporting activity. Even kids who surf, roller blade, skate or enjoy mountain bike riding should be fitted with a custom-made mouthguard.

Spring means outdoor sports and if your kids are active, you may want to consider some of the statistics.

Injuries that happen out on the field or on the court account for more than 600,000 trips to the ER every year. If that isn’t enough reason to call or click and schedule an appointment with Rodeo Dental, consider the fact that amateur and professional athletes are 60 times more susceptible to mouth injuries.

A knocked out tooth, injuries to the tongue, a chipped or broken tooth or an injury caused by a blow to the head are just some of the problems that could occur without a custom-made mouthguard.

The American Dental Association explains that custom-made mouthguards are responsible for preventing over 200,000 mouth injuries every year.

One of the biggest advantages of Custom Made Mouthguards is that a custom made mouthguard will provide the space needed for erupting and growing teeth. Even the top of the line over the counter standard and boil and bite mouth protectors cannot assure that kind of effectiveness and quality.

When you schedule an appointment with Rodeo Dental for a custom made mouthguard it will be made out of tear resistant materials that are easy to clean and comfortable to wear. A custom-made mouthguard also allows you to talk and breathe without any problems. A properly fitted mouthguard will be comfortable, protective, tear resistant, resilient, tasteless, odorless, and definitely not bulky.

Custom-made mouthguards should be used for all group and individual sports including baseball, football, soccer, hockey, basketball, and water polo. If your son or daughter enjoys skating, volleyball, handball, racquetball, gymnastics, or boxing, schedule an appointment with Rodeo Dental for a custom made mouthguard for your kids.

A trip to the ER because of a sporting injury can be serious; however, a high percentage of mouth injuries can be prevented with a custom made mouthguard. Call Rodeo Dental today.
