Many contact sports come with some risk of injury to the teeth or the soft tissues of the mouth, from chipped and knocked-out teeth to cuts, accidental bites and contusions on the cheeks, gums or tongue. For this reason, our dentists, Dr. Adam Bushell or Dr. Erik Rooklidge, suggest that athletically inclined patients get a sports mouth guard. A sports mouth guard is a custom rubber appliance that shields teeth from impact with foreign objects, each other and the soft areas of the mouth. If you are looking for sports mouth guards in Eagle Mountain, Utah, please give Eagle Mountain Children’s Dentistry a call at 801-789-2014 today.
