Do you or your child play sport? Have you thought of or do you wear a mouthguard?
Unfortunately, accidents happen. Dental injuries like cracked, broken teeth or even tooth loss are often caused whilst playing sport especially a contact sport. Therefore, it is so important to wear a custom-made mouthguard to avoid trauma.
Damage to your or your child’s mouth can be extremely distressing, and the treatment to fix it might be costly. Any injury might also affect how you smile and could have on your appearance.
Mouthguards should be essential when it comes to adults and children participating in activities and sports that involves physical contact or fast-moving objects.
A mouthguard is a specially made, rubber-like cover which fits exactly over your teeth and gums, cushioning them and protecting them from damage. Your dentist can will take impressions, so your guard will fit your mouth exactly ensuring comfort and provide better protection unlike the ones you can get off the shelf.
These mouthguards can also prevent damage to the jaw, neck and even the brain – helping to prevent against concussion and damage caused by a heavy blow.
