Why Your Athlete Needs the Best Youth Sports Mouthguard
No matter what sport your student is involved in, it’s important that they wear the right protective gear. In soccer, that means a particular kind of shoe that keeps them from slipping on the grass. In football, a helmet and pads are standard gear. In wrestling, headgear is essential. One thing all sports have in common, though, is the need for a quality youth sports mouthguard to protect your athlete’s dental health. The Game On youth sports mouthguard is the best one on the market. Continue reading to learn more.
Around 30 million children and teens participate in some type of organized sports program each year in the US, and more than 3.5 million of them suffer some type of injury. The most common injuries are strains and sprains, but dental injuries are all too common as well. Your lacrosse player may get hit in the face by a wayward stick and lose a tooth. Your basketball player may get hit by a ball and have one of their teeth shoved further up into their gums. Maybe your youth is involved in snowboarding, and when they wipe out, their snowboard hits their face causing a chipped tooth. As a parent, you can surely imagine countless scenarios in which your child is injured on the court, the field, or wherever they play.
Injuries could be exacerbated if your athlete wears braces. In addition to the normal dental injuries, they could end up with a metal bracket slicing up their lips, cheeks, and tongue. One of the wires may get knocked loose and pierce the soft tissue in their mouth. These types of accidents can be incredibly painful. At the same time, their orthodontic gear could get damaged and that can be not only painful, but expensive to fix.
This doesn’t mean you should deny your player the many benefits of being involved in organized sports. It simply means that you have the responsibility to provide them with the best youth sports mouthguard possible. Many, if not most, youth sports programs require their players to wear mouthguards, which is a great help to you. But if your youth is in a program that doesn’t require mouthguards, it’s up to you to make sure your athlete wears one anyway.
