Worried about knocking out a tooth?
You play to win, and that means playing hard, which increases your risk of accidentally damaging a tooth. In fact, within the United States, an estimated 5 million teeth are knocked out or damaged every year.
Custom mouthguards provide the best defense against mouth injuries sustained by athletes during practices and games. A study published in 2007 by the ADA showed that athletic activity without a mouthguard nearly doubled the risk of mouth trauma. And, many people are surprised to learn that basketball produces more dental trauma than any other sport! So before you send your athlete out onto the field or court, make sure their teeth are protected.
