Do you or your child play contact sports? We all know how important it is to use protection during contact sports and this means protecting our teeth too. Wearing a mouth guard is the best way to protect the teeth. What happens when that mouth guard becomes contaminated? When I think about the football players at our local high school. I think about the tackles they take and the dirt and grime that gets on their hands, not to mention the sweat and blood from other players. Then they use those hands to pull out their mouth guards. All I can say to that is, gross and yuck.
One study in Sports Dentistry by Thomas Glass, D.D.S et al, found five different molds on one young athletes mouthguard. That's enough to make me not want to put any guard in my mouth.
The experts at Defense Sport have found an easy to use solution to this disgusting problem. Defense Sport Mouthguard Rinse was developed to kill the bacteria that can cause infection. The nice thing is that it doesn't just work on sports mouth guards. Both my husband and I have dental bite guards. I don't use mine every night, but when I do, I always wonder what has grown on it while it's been sitting on my nightstand. I've always rinsed it in water, but I've never been confident that it is enough.
