Preventing injuries to your mouth and face is very important and that is why dentists recommend mouthguards.  

Key takeaways:

  • Mouthguards prevent injuries to your mouth and face, e.g. a broken jaw or teeth.
  • Mouthguards are essential in athletics; dentists mostly recommend them for people who participate in games, sports and other recreational activities.
  • Visit the dentist and get a mouthguard that is customized for your teeth and mouth.

Always wear a mouthguard during sports to avoid the sudden loss of your front teeth.
