Do you play sports? Please consider a Mouthguard…
Many sports players are unaware that simply wearing a protective mouthguard can stop them from obtaining a significant and preventable dental injury. All sports, regardless of whether they are contact sports such as boxing, AFL and rugby union, as well as non-contact sports including cricket, basketball and soccer, can cause damage to your teeth and mouth.
Custom mouthguards can help protect you from:
- Fractured or cracked teeth
- A broken jaw
- Knocked out teeth
- Nerve damage
- Cut lips
- Ongoing dental treatment
Custom fitted vs. over the counter Mouthguards
Over the counter mouthguards have given all mouthguards in general a bad reputation because they are uncomfortable, loose fitting and restrict talking and breathing. Even worse, they are not good at protecting your teeth and jaw upon impact.
However, custom fitted mouthguards are the complete opposite. As they are an exact replica and custom fitted, they help to absorb and spread the impact, which reduces the damage caused.
