Protection in any sport is very prudent. Some "contact" sports, like football, require mouthguards for the players. But, we find the supposedly "non-contact" sports, like basketball, lacrosse, soccer and skate boarding cause most of the dental injuries. Why? Because most participants in these sports don't wear mouth guards!!
MOUTHGUARDS WORK!! And the best, most secure mouthguards are custom-made. Boil and bite generic "one-size-fits-all" mouthguards are only a bargain, if you don't get hit! The extra cost of a professional, custom made mouthguard is very inexpensive insurance. If you or someobne you know needs a mouthguard, ask us for more information.
