You probably know that you need a mouth guard for sports such as football, boxing, hockey or lacrosse. But the fact is that you should protect your smile during any activity that could damage it. If you or your son or daughter plays sports, keep in mind that school or city recreational leagues may require a mouth guard to participate. And if you wear braces, a mouth guard should be a standard part of your sports equipment.
You have the option of buying a basic, over-the-counter mouthguard that can protect your teeth at any sporting goods or retail store. Boil-and-bite mouthguards are also available. This type of mouthguard is boiled until it become pliable. When it has sufficiently cooled, you bite down on it and it conforms to the shape of your teeth. However, for a mouth guard that will give your smile the protection it needs, visit our dentists for a sports mouth guard in Murphy and Wylie, Texas, that is designed and created specifically to fit your smile.
If sports are a part of your family’s life, you probably have a mouth guard or two somewhere around the house. However, they wear out quickly, and it is a good idea to have a new one made at the start of every season. Before your season starts, call Citrus Smiles at 972-472-8862 to plan a visit with our dentists and team.
