Dentist made mouthguards offer better protection
Sporting accidents are one of the most common causes for dental injuries. Teeth that have been damaged or knocked out, broken jaw and cut lips are all dental-related injuries that can be sustained during sports. And these injuries can cause further problems with your mouth and jaw. To put it simply, a custom-made mouthguard is cheaper than suffering a dental injury on the field.
We recommend mouthguards to be worn by anyone who plays contact sports such as football, boxing, soccer, and hockey. Even those participating in noncontact sports and any recreational activity (for example, skateboarding, mountain biking) that might pose a risk of injury to the mouth would benefit from wearing a protective mouth guard.
Why you should get your mouthguard from a dentist
The best way to minimise the risk of oral injury during sports and leisure activities is to invest in an appropriate mouthguard. The clear advantage of a mouthguard made by a dentist has over a store-bought one is the custom-made one is specially designed to suit you and your mouth. This means the protection will be better and it will feel more comfortable to wear. While the primary role of a sports mouthguard is to protect your teeth, it can also cushion a hit to the mouth or jaw and thereby prevent damage to the brain, neck and jaw.
A custom-fitted mouthguard can provide the best fit for your teeth. The benefits of a custom-made mouthguard include:
- Speak clearly
- Won’t shift or fall out
- Won’t restrict your breathing
