A Mouthguard is the last workout accessory we can have in our gym bags. But workout injuries are real. Whether your running, cycling, weight training or CrossFit, chances of a workout-related accident is possible. No one wants to lose their teeth exercising, and wearing a mouthguard can help you protect your teeth from exercise-related injuries.
There is a possibility in the teeth tapping each other during a fall. This can lead to cracking of teeth or even loss of a tooth. Also, there is the possibility of accidentally getting hit on the face while working out.
The mouthguard absorbs the force of the fall and the contact while protecting the teeth against chipping, breaking and getting knocked out. Mouthguards prevent you’re your teeth from coming into contact during an impact or a fall. This internal collision can cause your teeth to break or crack or even get knocked out and require dental treatments such as a root canal or dental implants.
Technology has progressed leaps and bounds in dental sciences, with dental implants which appear, feel and function like real teeth. However, these can be expensive, and no one likes living with missing teeth. After all, precaution is better than cure.
