According to the American Dental Association, mouth guards prevent approximately 200,000 injuries each year in high school and college football alone. What most people don't realize, is that mouth guards are indicated not only just for football, but many other sports as well. At Rivertown Dental Associates, we have seen many broken front teeth due to baseballs or softballs. Many people are also injured while playing indoor sports where trip-and-fall accidents result in an elbow to the face or even a mouth that breaks the fall onto a gym floor.
Thankfully, we have many patients who decide to have custom athletic mouth guards constructed to prevent damage to their smiles or the smiles of their kids. Dr. Hahn, Dr. Crete, and the Rivertown Dental staff fabricate custom mouth guards for you which far surpass the ability of preformed mouth guards to protect your teeth.
