You’ll notice that whether it’s the NFL, NCAA football, or the NBA, almost all players are wearing mouthguards – and thank goodness! Most athletes – and their team physicians and dentists – recognize the importance of protecting their teeth and smile. Many trainers also believe that they may improve the athlete’s performance, especially in activities like weightlifting.
We advise our patients, whether they compete or just work out, to have custom-made guards for both protection and performance. You can call Karin or Diane to set up an appointment for an evaluation and/or to fabricate one for you – or your kids!
