Mouthguards help prevent head injuries.
We all see the players on the field take those gross mouthguards out of their mouths and place them on the helmet during football games. Ever think that little piece of rubber could prevent so many injuries?
Not only protecting the players’ teeth, these mouthguards also protect against injuries such as broken jaws, damage to the soft tissue around teeth, damage to neck muscles and bones, and helps prevent concussions too.
Studies have shown that custom mouthguards made my a dentist are better than the “boil-n-bite” version found at stores at preventing these injuries.
