Brace Yourself with Sports Mouthguards

Experts claim well-fitted sports mouth guards are part of an essential athletic gear

As per fresh studies, an athlete is approximately 60 times more likely to suffer damage to his or her teeth when not wearing a sports mouthguard. Sports mouth guards are known to intercept impacts that may otherwise cause broken teeth, jaw injuries or cuts to the lip, tongue or face and also reduce the occurrence and severity of concussions. Mouthguards find usage in contact sports such as boxing, football and hockey but also in non-contact sports such as gymnastics, skateboarding.

“A sports-related dental injury can prove costly, which is why sports mouthguards are a great solution. The ideal mouthguard allows the wearer to speak, does not limit breathing in any way, stays firmly in place during activity, and is resilient and easy to clean. Vilafortuny’s dental department is able to provide patients with custom-built mouthguards that meet these criteria while offering superior protection and extreme comfort,” says Dr Trelles, founder of the state-of-the-art dentistry, plastic and aesthetic laser surgery clinic Vilafortuny.
