custom Mouth Guards
Its easy to remember protective gear such as helmets and padding. But one important piece of gear is frequently overlooked: mouth guards.
Dr. Maxfield makes custom mouth guards because facial protection is crucial. These mouth guards are both inexpensive and comfortable.
Prevention is key!
Why Use a Custom Mouth Guard?
Custom mouth guards provide much stronger protection than generic ones from the local drugstore. The cheap “boil-and-bite” type mouth guards are inadequate for most people. With custom mouth guards, athletes can easily drink and talk while wearing them. They are available in a variety of colors, and can be made to look invisible.
Why Should I Wear a Mouth Guard?
Some of our worst cases are people who were somehow hit in the face while not wearing a mouth guard. Without a mouth guard, teeth can be knocked out or broken. Mouth guards also provide some protection from possibly biting through your lips or cheeks.
When Should I Wear a Mouth Guard?
You should always wear a mouth guard while playing sports or during any physical activity. This includes everyone from football players, to wake boarders, to cheerleaders. Athletes who play full-contact sports of course run the risk of facial injury. It is not uncommon for a wake boarder to get hit in the face by their board during a wipe out. Cheerleaders are frequently elbowed or kicked in the face during stunts. Wearing a mouth guard will help prevent any serious oral injury.
