Mouthguards- Protect your smile!

Mouthguards 

Dental related injuries from sports play are common. If you or your children participate in sports, we recommend our custom-made mouth protectors know as Mouthguards.

What are Mouthguards?

A mouthguard is a protective device that covers the teeth and gums. It prevents injury to the mouth, teeth and jaw during sports. It’s important to wear during contact sports such as football, rugby, boxing and hockey. Additionally, non-contact sports such as soccer, cricket, netball and basketball.

How a Mouthguard works

A custom fitted mouthguard is made from an impression of your teeth and jaw. It’s professionally fitted to protect the inside of the mouth and lower skull. The device absorbs and spreads the impact during sport play.

Should I wear a Mouthguard?

We highly recommend wearing one for any physical sport. The mouthguard acts as a helmet for your teeth. Our teeth are very important and a custom fitted mouthguard can be considered an investment against dental injuries. We believe prevention is better than cure.

What about over the counter Mouthguards?

These self-fitted guards are commonly known as the boil and bite mouthguards. These do not protect the teeth as they loose fitting. They could also become life threatening if they dislodge to the back of the throat during impact.
