Extra Protection from Concussion with an Athletic Mouthguard

August 31, 2012

If you play a contact sport like football, hockey, or boxing, you know how important an athletic mouthguard is for protecting your teeth and tongue. But did you know that an athletic mouthguard can also offer extra protection from concussions?

It’s true!

A custom-made athletic mouthguard will actually absorb some of the force incurred from falls, collisions, or other forms of physical activity during play, helping athletes avoid a serious concussion. You might think of them as acting like shock absorbers that protect the jaw and the base of the skull from becoming violently jarred.

That makes wearing an athletic mouthguard absolutely essential for some sports, like the ones mentioned above. But it’s not just football players and hockey players who can benefit. The American Dental Association and the Academy of Sports Dentistry recommends that athletes from just about any sport wear an athletic mouthguard, including athletes involved in:

  • Basketball
  • Track and field
  • Gymnastics
  • Martial arts
  • Skateboarding
  • Soccer
  • Softball, and more

To find out more about how athletic mouthguards can offer you extra protection from concussions and other injuries, call the dental office of D’Amico and Mauck today. During a simple visit with us at our Aurora office, we’d be happy to explain the advantages and how we can help you.

We look forward to hearing from you!
