Why You Need a Mouthguard

In recognition of National Facial Protection Month, River Oaks Dental Care would like to remind you about the importance of wearing an athletic mouthguard. Although mouthguards are considered standard equipment in sports like football and hockey, dental associations and oral health specialists recommend that mouthguards are worn for any contact sport. Other contact sports include soccer, lacrosse, skateboarding, wrestling, and more. 

Visit our Decatur dental office to get custom athletic mouthguards for yourself or the other athletes in your family. They’re more comfortable and provide much better protection than store-bought alternatives. 

Watch this video from the American Dental Association (ADA) about the importance of wearing a mouthguard to learn more.
