Benefits of Wearing Mouth Guard for Contact Sports


Posted on 11/8/2021 by Langtree Dental Associates
Benefits of Wearing Mouth Guard for Contact SportsFor many people, playing contact sports such as football or hockey can be a great way to blow off some steam and get in some exercise. However, it is important to keep an eye out for any potential risks from the sport. One risk is oral injuries due to teeth being knocked loose by a hit or collision with another player. A mouth guard worn during these games can help protect your teeth and jaw from injury. If you are looking for more information about how a mouthguard could benefit you, check out our blog post here.

Protect your teeth from being knocked out


For many people, playing contact sports such as football or hockey can be a great way to blow off some steam and get in some exercise. However, it is important to keep an eye out for any potential risks from the sport. One risk is oral injuries due to teeth being knocked loose by a hit or collision with another player. A mouth guard worn during these games can help protect your teeth and jaw from injury because it cushions your teeth and jaw from contact with other players.

Reduce or eliminate concussive brain injuries


The concussion epidemic has reached a new high in contact sports such as football, hockey, and boxing, where helmets have been required for decades. In addition to protecting athletes from more severe head injuries with helmets, modern mouth guards are beginning to show promising results in reducing brain concussions. When all of your major facial bones are being supported throughout an entire game or match, it is no surprise that these injuries have begun to drop significantly among those who choose to wear them. Contact sports can be extremely dangerous, but having peace of mind knowing you're doing everything possible within reason will go a long way towards mitigating potential damage down the road!

Avoid tooth grinding that can cause dental problems such as tooth wear and gum recession


One of the most important reasons to wear a mouthguard during contact sports is to help prevent tooth grinding. Many athletes who compete in these events will often grind their teeth which leads to serious dental problems down the road such as tooth erosion, chipping and cracking, resulting in thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars in treatment costs.

We hope you have now seen why it may be a good idea to wear mouth guards for contact sports. If you want more information, come by our practice, and we will answer any questions you may have!
