Under Armor Mouth Guards
Mouth guards: Preventing oral injuries for Franklin and Centerville Areas athletes
One third of all dental injuries are sports-related, according to the American Dental Association. A tackle on the field, a line drive on the diamond, or an elbow on the court can cause permanent damage to the teeth, jaws, or soft tissues of the mouth. The ADA estimates that over 200,000 oral injuries can be prevented with the use of mouth guards. Franklin area kids and adults play safer with this simple precaution.
Common sports oral injuries include:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Root damage to teeth
- Avulsed (dislodged or knocked-out) teeth
- Fractured crowns or damaged bridgework
- Soft tissue trauma to lips or cheeks
- Broken jaws
Kori & Everhart Advanced Dentistry is part of the network of dental professionals who offer custom-fit mouth guards made by one of the best-known names in sports – Under Armour. We take impressions of your mouth to have a bite guard constructed just for you. It fits comfortably, allowing you to breathe normally for optimal sports performance, and to speak. Our mouth guards come with Under Armour’s Universal Guarantee of Performance (including a dental warranty). They are available is fun colors and flavors, too!
While Under Armour mouth guards available at retail stores are good quality, no off-the-shelf guard can provide the level of protection that a custom-fit device offers. It stays in place to absorb energy, dramatically reducing impact, and cushioning soft tissues. There is also evidence that mouth guards may reduce the risk of concussions. A recent study of high-school athletes, revealed that 56 percent of concussions occurred in students who were not wearing mouth guards.
