As an athlete, you often wear a mouthguard while competing in high-impact sports. The mouthwear makes participating in sports safer for your smile. Preventing mouth injuries is the main purpose of athletic mouthwear.
Mouthguards especially help athletes with braces to protect their oral soft tissue during impact.
Why Choose Athletic Mouthwear?
In addition to damage control on impact, athletic mouthguards help increase moisture in the mouth and throat. They also help with breathing during workouts by opening their airways.
Mouthguards are also helpful if an athlete gets a tooth knocked out during game impact. Stouffville athletic mouthwear will help to keep teeth in the mouth. We encourage you to bring the avulsed tooth to the dentist as soon as possible save your smile.
Athletic Mouthwear Options
There are three types of mouthwear; stock, boil and bite, and custom-fitted mouthguard. Athletes often prefer the custom-fitted mouthwear as it specifically caters to their bite.
It is common for athletes to wear custom mouthguards in contact sports because they cover the teeth and cushion blows.
How to Care for Your Mouthwear
Mouthguards will last with proper care. Follow your dentist’s instructions which often include:
- Dry off the mouthwear after use
- Clean them with a soft toothbrush or cloth
- Store the mouthguard away from direct sunlight
