Wearing a Damage Control Mouthguard protects you from mouth and jaw injuries and tooth loss, and some studies show that a properly fitted mouthguard may help protect against head injuries and concussion. An estimated 5 million teeth are knocked out every year due to sports related activities, with up to $5,000 in dental costs. Wearing a Damage Control Mouthguard allows you to concentrate on your game without worrying about tooth loss and jaw injury.
"A guy in my guard accidentally bumped his head into my chin. The collision cracked one of my teeth. It cost $900 to repair."
-John Bennett ( Comment on thefightworkspodcast.com)
Dr. Vesna Delic, D.D.S. and her husband Delano Romero have owned and operated their own Dental practice in Albuquerque, New Mexico for 4 years. For the ten years that Dr. Delic has been practicing she continues to stress to her patients the importance of preventative care. From daily flossing, brushing, and regular dental check-ups to protection against injury, all these are key ingredients for people to keep their teeth healthy and intact through the remainder their lives. Knowing the importance of this her husband Delano, an active participant of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, went to a local fight shop and purchased a boil and bite mouthguard. To his wife’s dismay he failed to wear it as often as planned, for the breath obstruction and speech inhibition it caused during practice and competition. During one practice session Delano’s chin collided with a training partners head chipping both of his front upper teeth. That day, as he walked around looking like Jim Carry’s character on Dumb and Dumber, Dr. Delic’s dexterous hands went to work and repaired his broken teeth with an expense that would have normally cost $700.00. After much lecturing form his caring Dentist, and Delano giving her reasons as to why he was not wearing the boil and bite mouthguard regularly, Dr. Delic took an impression of Delano's teeth for a custom mouthguard. Since that day Delano has been a strong advocate of custom mouthguards, for the difference it has made in his training. Being able to breath, communicate, reduce the chances of concussion, as well as having the confidence in the superior protection custom mouthguards offer over boil and bite, it has helped contribute to his and his peers success in the sport. The word continues to spread and is now offered to you now with a considerable cost savings.
