Injuries to the teeth and mouth make up a major portion of sports injuries–as high as 39%, according to some studies. The most effective way to prevent this type of injury while participating in sports is with athletic mouthguards. As part of our preventive dentistry, CITIDental High Street in Boston offers quality custom mouthguards made specifically for you to keep your teeth whole and undamaged while you play.
Several studies have shown that when rules regarding mouthguards and faceguards were introduced to high school and college football, injuries to the mouth and teeth dropped by roughly 99%. While not all athletic programs have rules about mouthguards, they are still essential in protecting the teeth of youth and adults who participate in sports.
