TAMPA, Fla., June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – (DDS Lab) – DDS Lab is pleased to announce its sponsorship of several up and coming mixed martial arts athletes. The athletes will each be wearing custom-fit Fierce® mouthguards during their matches with the goal of building awareness about the importance of wearing a properly fitted mouth guard.
Beginning this summer, DDS Lab will be sponsoring MMA Fighters Christopher Varner, Jeff Smith, Ashley English, Aaron Bicking, Darrell Horcher and Clark Young. Upcoming fights will be nationally broadcast on Comcast Networks and NBC.
Thousands of teeth are knocked out each year due to sports injuries. Athletes are much more likely to suffer damage if they are not wearing a mouthguard. Saving teeth is not the only benefit wearing a mouthguard provides. Mouthguards can also prevent cheek, lip and tongue injury as well as helping to reduce the impact of blows to the jaw that could cause concussion and neck injury.
DDS Lab President, Amy Ceresa, says, “DDS Lab is excited to support these athletes. Together we hope to increase the awareness about the importance of wearing a properly fitted mouthguard.”
The American Dental Association recommends wearing custom mouthguards for the following sports: basketball, boxing, field hockey, football, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, martial arts, racquetball, roller hockey, rugby, skateboarding, soccer, volleyball, water polo, weight lifting, and wrestling, among others.
Custom-fit mouthguards are more comfortable and provide better protection for the athlete. Fierce mouthguards are available in six levels of sport-specific protection. Athletes can also choose from over 40 different colors, and customize the mouthguard with artwork.
