Living an active lifestyle is good for your physical and mental faculties. When it comes to your dental health, however, such a lifestyle might prove to be a risky venture. For instance, if you’re into ball sports such as basketball or baseball, or full-contact sports such as mixed martial arts and boxing, your teeth could be in danger of being chipped, cracked, broken, and dislodged by an errant basketball, punch, or kick to your mouth. To combat any unwanted dental damage you may experience from such sports, a Greenville, SC family dental practitioner such as Dr. Brian R. Derrick urges the use of mouth guards.
