-Athletic Mouth Guards Now in All Fan Favorite Team Colors-
Atlanta, GA – (WiredPRNews.com) Athleticmouthguards.com, a leading manufacturer of custom made athletic mouth guards and subsidiary of Proactive Labs, announces the launch of a new contest kicked off this month allowing its Facebook fans to send in photos of their favorite sports team and/or sports player for a chance to win $50.
Fans are being asked to mail in the photos of their favorite player and explaining why he or she should be the player of the day. The contest also calls for fans to pick their favorite football team of the week and what makes that team special to them. Each week the marketing team of Athletic Mouthguards.com picks the team of the week based on entries and at the end of each month one fan will win a $50 gift card if their entry is picked. The contest official start date was Friday, December 10.
“We are curious to see which players and teams are our fan’s favorites. I feel it’s important for us to interact with our customers so that we are consistently getting more and more feedback. Athletic mouth guards are not a game to us. By choosing to wear custom fit mouth guards, our customers are already making the first right move to prevent serious injury. We make our mouth guards affordable so that every amateur or young school athlete who needs a mouth guard, can afford to purchase one of ours,” Athletic MouthGaurds.com CEO John Berberian said.
The custom-fitted athletic mouth guards are fabricated at the company’s professional onsite dental laboratory. They are individually custom designed to provide the best protection, fit, and comfort. The custom mouth guard fits over the teeth producing less interference with breathing and speech. Normally, custom-fitted athletic mouth guards cost anywhere from $75 to $150 or even higher. However, due to the large volume of athletic mouth guards fabricated each month in its lab, Athletic Mouthguards.com can offer consumers deep discounts. The company has developed a unique kit that comes with everything customers need to have a custom fit mouth guard made in the comfort of their homes – with no dentist visit required. The kit comes with everything they need to easily take their teeth impressions and also includes a pre-paid mailer.
The American Dental Association estimates that mouth guards prevent approximately 200,000 injuries each year.
Mouth guards provide protection for a player in three different ways:
-Mouth guards protect the teeth by distributing the force of a blow over all of the surrounding teeth and gums.
-Mouth guards protect against neck injuries.
-Most importantly, mouth guards serve as a shock absorber for concussive forces affecting the lower jaw.
A mouth guard can prevent serious injuries such as concussions, cerebral hemorrhages, incidents of unconsciousness, jaw fractures and neck injuries by helping to avoid situations where the lower jaw gets jammed into the upper jaw. Wearing a mouth guard can reduce concussions by almost half. Young children, in particular, often sustain damaged or dislodged teeth, fractured jaws and lacerated lips when participating in sports. Mouth guards are effective in moving soft issue in the oral cavity away from the teeth, preventing laceration and bruising of the lips and cheeks, especially for those who wear orthodontic appliances.??
“Despite what many people may think, mouth guards are not just for football players. Anytime there is a strong chance for contact with other participants or hard surfaces during a practice or game, I think it’s important that players protect themselves,” Berberian said.
Players who participate in basketball, softball, wrestling, soccer, lacrosse, rugby, in-line skating, and martial arts as, well as recreational sports such as skateboarding and bicycling should wear mouth guards while competing. Currently, five sports at the amateur level require mouth guards during practice and competition: boxing, football, ice hockey, men’s lacrosse and women’s field hockey.
