Mouth guards aren’t just for boxers and pro-athletes. Safety is an important part of any sport. So, while you are shopping for helmets and knee-pads, don’t forget your mouth. An athletic mouth guard could be the difference between breaking records and breaking teeth. The ADA even encourages patients to use protective mouthguards during recreational sports such as rollerblading and skateboarding.
It is especially important to outfit your school-aged athlete with a mouth guard for practice and tournament play. In addition to protecting teeth, some mouthguards, such as Under Armour mouthwear, are designed to improve athletic performance.
More than just a mouthguard, Under Armour Performance Mouthwear is custom designed to reduce jaw tension, allowing you to focus on what’s important – smearing the competition!
Patented ArmourBite Technology prevents your teeth from clenching and pivots your jaw forward to relieve pressure on the TMJ. Gone are the excess negative hormones and the energy-draining effects, so the body can now unleash its full potential.
April is National Facial Protection month so let’s all celebrate by making an appointment to discuss your mouth guard needs and options with Dr. Ken Gasper of Aesthetic Dentistry by Design in Colorado Springs.
