All it takes is one hit – it doesn’t even have to be that hard – to damage your smile.
If you lead an active lifestyle, you already know that accidents happen. Not even professional athletes are immune to injury!
One third of all dental injuries are sports related, according to the American Dental Association. But you can protect yourself! Each year, mouthguards prevent more than 200,000 oral injuries. That’s why they are a must, along with the protective gear already in your closet.
What are some of the high-risk activities?
Sports: Basketball, soccer, baseball, lacrosse, rugby, wrestling, martial arts, boxing, gymnastics, hockey, water polo, squash.
Others: Acrobatics, skydiving, bicycling, equestrian events, skiing, skateboarding, weightlifting.
