If someone in your family is involved in contact sports, you probably already have a mouth guard or two in the house. But did you know that you need a new one at the start of every season and that you should wear a mouth guard for any activity that could result in a blow to the face? Our dentists and team offer custom sports mouth guards in Cohasset, Massachusetts, and for every member of your family, and we invite you to call Freeman Dental Associates of Cohasset at 781.383.6555 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Alison Freeman and Dr. Katie Murphy.
Our dentists and team are dedicated to keeping your smile healthy and free from discomfort. To help us do this, we provide several types of mouth guards at our office. For our athletic patients, we often recommend a type of mouth guard called an athletic mouth guard or sports guard. Sports guards fit over your teeth while you play sports and participate in other athletic activities to protect your smile from injury. Sports guards are especially important for our patients who play high-contact sports such as wrestling, football, hockey and rugby; however, all types of athletes can benefit from an athletic mouth guard. Whether you play soccer, basketball or baseball, a sports guard can be a great way to protect your smile and keep it safe.
While a number of types of athletic mouth guards are available, a custom-made mouth guard is the most effective in protecting your smile. This type of mouth guard is designed to comfortably fit your smile and prevent dental injury, such as knocked out and chipped teeth. A sports guard can also help to prevent injury to the soft tissues of the mouth, including the tongue, lips, cheeks and gums.
We invite you to contact our office today to learn more about mouth guards and their benefits. We look forward to caring for your smile!
