Sports and Safety Tips; The Importance of a Custom-Made MouthguardPosted on Mar 15th, 2021
These days, more and more children and young adults participate in sports. Unfortunately, the number of sporting accidents has also increased significantly, and young athletes are far more likely to suffer a facial injury and damage to their teeth and jaws when not wearing a well-fitting mouthguard.
If you or another family member does suffer a dental injury, please contact us immediately for assistance and advice. Certain injuries, including knocked out or partly avulsed teeth or teeth that have been pushed into the gum, need urgent dental care. Others may be less urgent, but we can still book an appointment to ensure you get dental care promptly.
Why Choose a Custom Mouthguard?
Ideally, it is better to purchase a custom-made mouthguard from our dental clinic if you or your kids participate in any sport where you could take a blow to the mouth. While you can buy mouthguards over-the-counter, they provide less protection and tend to be far less comfortable to wear, so there is a temptation not to use the mouthguard. Our mouthguards are designed to fit perfectly, are durable and easy to care for and do not affect breathing or speech. They are made from a tough, durable material that is taste and odour free.
Damaged adult teeth cannot grow back, so it is worth protecting that smile.
