With National Mouth Protection Month just a few weeks away, it’s time to schedule an appointment with your Glendale dentist for a custom made mouthguard.

April is National Mouth Protection Month and with active families participating in spring and summer sports, a custom-made mouthguard is a must when it comes to the uniform. Whether you and your family ride mountain bikes together or you like to play racquetball every Saturday, a custom-made mouth protector should always be included in your gym bag.

According to Dr. John Asano, hundreds and thousands of amateur and professional athletes succumb to mouth injuries every year. What’s most unfortunate is that most of those mouth injuries could have been prevented had the athlete worn a custom made mouth protector.

You may think you are safe with a conventional or boil and bite mouth protector, but ask yourself how often you actually wear it. If you are like most athletes, yours will stay in your locker. Standard and boil and bite mouthguards are uncomfortable. With these types of mouth protectors, which are available from your local pharmacy or sports store, it’s difficult to talk and speak. In a team situation, some players avoid the constant in and out of the mouthguard during the huddle, and leave it in their gym bag.

Dr. John Asano can fit you and your family with a custom made mouthguard that you and your children will actually wear. With a custom fitted mouth protector, you can be assured that you and the family will spend more time on the playing field, and less time in the ER.

Regardless of the activity, a custom-made mouthguard is essential. Call or click and schedule a consultation for a custom-made mouth protector from your dentist in Glendale today. It really can save you time and money.
