A bad hop results in stitches to the shortstop’s lip; the power forward takes an errant elbow, and loses a front tooth; the setter attempts a block, but takes the volleyball to the jaw instead. The common thread here is that many people do not consider these to be true “contact sports,” yet participation can frequently lead to injuries to the mouth and teeth that many normally associate with other sports, such as football, lacrosse or hockey. As a result, in addition to what you are used to seeing on the football and lacrosse fields and the hockey rinks, many athletes who play baseball, basketball, volleyball and other such sports have started utilizing mouthguards for comfort and protection.
At DeForte Dentistry, we can fit any mouth with the necessary protective guard that will be both comfortable and functional. The mouthguard will give the athletes (AND their families!) the peace of mind that comes with knowing the chances of injury and/or damage have been decreased. From the youngest budding athletes to players at the high school, college AND professional levels, Dr. Carolyn DeForte will custom-fit ANY mouth with the necessary tool to inspire confidence and safety.
