Dentistry has come a long way since then and I am really glad for that. If it hadn't, all of our daughters would now be walking around with a set of crooked teeth, afraid to show anyone a bright smile.
One of them is still using one of those retainer guards to keep her teeth aligned and probably has to do so for the rest of her life, but those night guards can already be purchased for as low as $34.95 over the Internet.
That is substantially less then the $400-$1000 she would normally pay for a dental night guard at the dentist and they are equally just as good at doing the job.
The same goes for all the teeth whitening systems you can find galore in the stores and online; perfectly white teeth are within reach for everyone who wants it without costing an arm and a leg.
You can't be careful enough when it comes to your teeth and when practicing a sport, athletic sports guards are not a luxury, but a must. After all, you like to keep the set you have for as long as possible!
