If a patient participates in organized team sports, the use of a mouthguard can help protect their teeth, jaw and gums from potential on-field injury.
There are very simple statistics for providers to help educate patients:
- The AGD cites that mouthguards help prevent nearly 200,000 injuries every year.
- The estimated cost to replace a tooth is $5,000.
- The ADA cites that 10-20% of all sports-related injuries are maxillofacial.
A mouthguard, whether custom-fabricated or a boil and bite variety, is a far less expensive and less traumatic solution to prevent injuries to the teeth, jaw and gums! Featuring the Under Armour Performance Mouthwear™ lineup in the office is one great example of how to grow your practice!
