Dental implants and the mouth guard

By savannah 10/4/2010 10:44:36 AM
i got a dental implant this week. it is a front tooth. i got a temporary crown on it since i am 16 and need a front tooth. i need to participate in a high school rodeo and am afraid i will hurt it. is it ok to wear like a boil and bite mouth guard over my teeth to protect it or will it be bad to wear a mouth guard over it? thanks

Mouth guard is to protect the teeth from the injury. As you just got the implant ,it is advisable to wear the mouth guard to protect the implant from injury during the play but it is advisable to get it made from the dentist as he wll take necessary precautions to save th tooth from any injury when you wear the mouth guard. for more info on mouth gards you can visit the following
