Look after your teeth
Wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard can provide you with the support and protection your teeth, lips, and jaw needs during sports. And anyone who plays a contact sport should consider wearing a mouthguard.
Why wear a mouthguard
The benefit of wearing a mouthguard is that it will absorb the shock of a blow to the face. If you do suffer a blow to the face during sports and are not wearing a mouthguard you could suffer:
- A chipped tooth
- Cracked tooth
- Broken teeth
- Internal damage
In severe cases not wearing a mouthguard might mean suffering concussion or a broken jaw (note: anyone who watches rugby league or rugby union will know a mouthguard cannot outright prevent concussion).
Another benefit of wearing a mouthguard is that by preventing all these injuries you help to maintain the health of your teeth and you save on expensive restorative dental treatments.
Mouthguard from a dentist
By having a custom-fitted mouthguard made by a dentist you should receive a mouthguard which:
- Is comfortable
- Allows you to talk
- Has maximum resistance against dislodgement
- Shouldn’t restrict breathing
