Why mouthguards are a must

If you or anyone else in your family is keen on sports, a well-fitting mouthguard is a must. Unfortunately, every year there are thousands of dental injuries where people will chip, crack or even knock out a tooth. Imagine how upset you’d be if you lost a tooth, or just pause for a moment and think about the potential costs of restoring or having to replace a missing tooth. These expenses can be considerable over a lifetime.

Mouthguards are designed to help cushion the impact of any blow to your face, minimising the risk of broken teeth and other injuries to your mouth. They usually cover the upper teeth because your top teeth tend to take the brunt of any injuries.

Why choose a custom mouthguard?

While you can buy over-the-counter mouthguards, these only provide minimal protection at best and are ill-fitting and often extremely uncomfortable to wear. In contrast, we can provide you with a custom-made mouthguard designed to fit precisely over the contours of your teeth, providing a maximum level of protection. Our mouthguards are durable, neutral tasting and comfortable to wear so they won’t obstruct your breathing.

It’s a far preferable and more cost-effective solution than potentially dealing with tooth loss. Custom-made mouthguards are easy to care for, and we can check their condition at your next appointment.
