Sporting accidents are one of the most common causes of dental injury. Every year thousands of people, including young children, are treated for dental injuries that could have been avoided or minimised by wearing a protective custom-fitted mouthguard.
People of all ages, who are involved in sports where there is a risk of contact to the face, should protect their teeth with a properly fitted mouthguard. Damaged or dislodged teeth, broken jaws and cut lips can be sustained when playing sport. A mouthguard helps absorb and spread the impact of a blow to the face, which might otherwise result in an injury to the mouth or jaw. Dental injuries can result in time off school or work to recover, can be painful and disfiguring, and may involve lengthy and expensive dental treatment.
The cost of an injury to your teeth or jaw far exceeds the cost of a custom-fitted mouthguard. Over the counter mouth guards do not offer the snug, comfortable fit that a custom mouth guard can nor can they offer an adequate level of protection. Talk to us about creating a customized mouth guard for any sports enthusiast.
Mouthguards should be worn whilst playing and training for any sport where there is the potential for contact to the face. It is essential to wear a mouthguard while playing football, and while playing any other sports where there is a chance of being hit in the jaw or head. These sports include hockey, netball, baseball, basketball and even skateboarding and skiing.
