Wilson, Greenville, Goldsboro, Rocky Mount, Raleigh & nearby areas
If you’re an athlete, chances are you wear a helmet, pads, and other equipment to keep parts of your body safe. But what about your teeth? If you play sports where injury to the mouth is possible, our Wilson family dentists can recommend a suitable, custom-made mouth guard.
Contact sports is one of the leading causes of trauma to the mouth. Don’t risk injury to your teeth: Call Ham, Dixon & Boles today at 252-291-2892 to schedule a fitting for your mouth guard. Our family dentists welcome patients from Wilson and other North Carolina communities.
How Can a Mouth Guard Help?
Just like a helmet protects your head, a mouth guard diminishes the impact of blows you might sustain during play. Some of the activities where a mouth guard is most essential include:
- Boxing, wrestling, and martial arts
Some kids in middle school or high school divide the year between different sports. Wearing a mouth guard can help limit the risk of injuries like:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Tooth loss
- Biting the tongue or inside of the cheek
Like any type of safety equipment, mouth guards don’t necessarily prevent injury if you’re hit by a ball or collide with another player. However, wearing a mouth guard can provide enough protection to reduce the force of impact on teeth, your jaw, and soft tissue in the mouth.
