Why Wear a Mouthguard During Sports?

3 580x325 - Why Wear a Mouthguard During Sports?

Every year thousands of people will chip, fracture or even knock out teeth while playing contact and some non-contact sports. The consequences can be very upsetting, and life-long restorative care may cost thousands of dollars. Wearing a well-made mouthguard helps to minimise this damage, absorbing some of the impact of a blow to the mouth.

Why is a Custom-Made Mouthguard Best?

You can purchase over-the-counter mouthguards for just a few dollars, but this is a false economy. These mouthguards offer minimal protection at best and are uncomfortable to wear and may fall out or obstruct breathing. In contrast, custom-made mouthguards are made to fit your mouth precisely. They are designed to protect critical areas and offer maximum protection for your teeth and jaws while you enjoy your chosen sport.

Our mouthguards are made from a durable material that is resistant to tears and which tastes neutral. We can check the fit and condition of your mouthguard at every visit, and children’s mouthguards may need regularly replacing as their teeth and jaws grow and develop.
