Snow Canyon Rugby Mouthguards.
We recently partnered up with the Snow Canyon High School Rugby team and provided them with custom fit mouthguards for all of their players!
Sports are very popular among the youth in our community. Although there are many benefits to athletic competition, it is well known that sporting activities have an associated risk of injury and damage to the face and teeth caused by falls and collisions.
Children and teens are most susceptible to sports-related oral injury between the ages of 7 and 17, but regardless of age, traumatic injury to the face and teeth is a significant risk for all who participate in sports.
Because of pain, psychological effects, and economic implications, the consequences of dental trauma for children and their families are substantial. However, prevention of sports-related dental trauma is both simple and inexpensive, by wearing a mouthguard.
Here at Burke and Beckstrom Orthodontics we encourage the use of a custom-fit mouthguard for all collision and contact sports.
