When playing sports it is very easy for accidents to happen. Even in low contact, or no contact sports, it is still possible to receive some kind of trauma to the face. In general, people often think of mouthguards for sports like boxing, hockey, and football. But even in sports like soccer, basketball, and baseball a mouthguard can help protect your teeth and save you from costly dental bills. For example, I have seen, and experienced myself, playing baseball and someone tries to catch a bouncing ball, and it hits a rock and shoots straight up to catch the person in the face. In many sports, it could be a flailing elbow that catches you in the mouth to knock out some teeth. In some cases, tripping and landing face first on the pavement causes the problem. So if you are in any kind of sports, I strongly recommend you get a custom sports mouthguard by contacting us today (do not buy a store-bought, pre-fab appliance).
