Protect Your Smile When Playing High-Risk Sports by Wearing an Athletic Mouth Guard

Posted .

April is National Facial Protection Month and we want to join the efforts to promote awareness. We do this by supporting the use of protective gear — like mouth guards — to keep dental-facial injuries from happening because of sports or high impact or contact recreational activities. This means wearing a protective mouth guard when engaging in these potentially injurious activities.

Our dental office is pleased to offer various customized mouth guards to protect your teeth, gums, cheeks, and other areas of the mouth as much as possible. If you or a loved one participate in this kind of activity, Dr. Paresh Patel is happy to provide an athletic mouth or sports guard.

Wearing a Protective Mouth Guard

These mouth guards are worn over your teeth when engaging in sports like soccer, wrestling, football, hockey, rugby, basketball or baseball, for example. Because these mouth guards are tailored specifically for your mouth, they are comfortable to wear while allowing you to breathe easily. Wearing a sports guard can help you avoid damaging or breaking your teeth and cushioning your soft oral tissues from injury upon an impact.

If you or one of your family members actively participate in sports which could involve injury to the mouth, we invite you to speak with Dr. Patel and our team about wearing a sports guard. Please call (469) 362-3150 to schedule a visit or speak with our team in Frisco, Texas. We are here to help you protect all of your smile in your day-to-day activities, and we always encourage proactivity through prevention whenever possible!
