There are splints made by the dentists that are much better than the ones that are sold in athletic stores.
The first ones are made for each individual whereas the others do not fit so correctly.
A recent research in the USA showed that every year more than 5 million teeth break during some sort of sports activities.
Young athletes are more seriously involved.
To break a tooth is not that simple. You have a troublesome area in your mouth for a life-time.
It sounds very dramatic but it is true, because the area where the accident took place always needs different treatment from the rest of the mouth.
It is wise a hypoallergic protective splint to be recommended by the dentist and / or the trainer, especially in young ages.
