Sports Safety

As we approach the fall sports season, Dr. Booth and Team want to remind you to protect those precious smiles!   

We recommend that our patients that are active in sports wear properly fitted mouthguards to help prevent injuries to the teeth, tongue, lips, face or jaw joints.

According to the American Dental Association®, studies show that athletes are 60 times more likely to suffer harm to the teeth if they are not wearing a mouthguard appliance.  While high contact sports such as football, soccer and boxing are at higher risk for mouth injuries, dental injuries are also common in independent activities such as roller skating, skateboarding and gymnastics. 


Fit matters with Dental Mouthguards

It is extremely important that a mouthguard be well-fitted to provide the most protection.  A poorly fitted mouthguard can pop out during sports contact, making it useless.
