When Should Athletes Wear Mouthguards?

Playing sports is a great way to stay healthy. However, accidents can happen; it’s best to wear a sports mouthguard to protect yourself from oral injuries. In fact, for those who play football in high school or college, wearing a mouthguard is required. Those who play other types of sports, particularly basketball, can also benefit from wearing a mouthguard.

Watch this video to hear from a dentist who often treats athletes for sports injuries. They may suffer from tooth fractures, jaw fractures, lip abrasions, and even concussions. Mouthguards can help prevent all of these injuries.

Schedule an appointment with Dr. Charles M. Marks, D.D.S. and Dental Associates to get fitted for a mouthguard. Residents of Manhattan can call our cosmetic dentistry practice at (212) 279-1232.
