With the month of September nearly behind us, most of us here in south Louisiana have one thing on our minds: Football. Unfortunately, with football also comes injury and we thought it would be a great idea to remind everyone of the importance of protecting yourself during sports.
As we stated in our previous post about mouthguards: More than 200,000 oral injuries are prevented annually in this country by a sports mouthguard, according to the ADA.
If that statistic still doesn’t convince you to always wear a mouthguard…check out these 5 injury-prone areas that wearing mouthguards help to avoid:
1. Helps to prevent jaw and neck injuries
2. Acts a shield to jaw joints
3. Protects teeth during impact
4. Cushions soft tissues
5. Lessens the risk of concussions.
