As our Colorado summer comes into full swing, we see friends on the volleyball and basketball courts, kids skateboarding and rollerblading, and people out on their bikes. With all these fun outdoor activities comes the risk of injury. It only takes one bad move to permanently damage your teeth or lose them, so why risk it? Just as you’d wear your seatbelt to drive your car, wear a mouth guard while playing sports to prevent the unthinkable!
While a professionally fit mouth guard provides the best protection for your teeth, boil and bite mouth guards purchased in store also minimize the risk of tooth loss considerably. This is a great option for someone who isn’t involved in these activities on a regular basis. These function much better than ready-to-wear stock mouth guards because they are formed more securely to your teeth.
