At Windermere Orthodontics, many of our patients participate in a variety of sports throughout the year. The fall season is a busy time for sports, with some students even participating in more than one sport. The need for safety equipment when taking part in sports is well known, however dental protection can sometimes be an after-thought. With or without braces, dental protection is critical for contact sports. At Windermere Orthodontics, we can help make mouthguards an essential component of your safety!
A mouthguard helps prevent injury not only to your teeth, but also protect your mouth, lips, cheeks, gums, tongue and brain. If a strong force is applied to the lower jaw it can be transmitted directly to the skull base and brain, resulting in possible injuries to the jaw or causing a concussion.
At Windermere Orthodontics we can help protect your smile with a custom-fitted mouthguard. Contact us today at one of our orthodontic offices in Suwannee or Cumming!
