If you engage in a sporting activity, please be certain to protect your teeth from possible trauma by using a mouthguard. A rubber-like mouthguard is custom designed to cushion your teeth, jaws, tongue, and cheeks from a blow to the face, protecting you and minimising the risk of emergencies.
In two quick appointments Thornton Dental dentists can fit a comfortable, custom fitted mouthguard, which will serve you for years.
The Importance of Mouthguards
When partaking in most sporting activities, it’s vital to protect your teeth from injury. Wearing a mouthguard can help give you the confidence you need to perform at your full potential, safe in the knowledge that your teeth are well-protected.
Without using a good quality mouthguard, you can suffer dental injuries such as:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Fractured restorations of crowns or bridgework
- Injuries to lip and cheek
- Root damage to the teeth
- Fractured jaws
A rubber-like mouthguard covers the upper teeth, whilst cushioning them from a blow to the face. It can minimise the risk of damaged or broken teeth and injuries to the lips, tongue, cheeks, or jaw.
Although generic mouthguards are available over the counter, a custom-made mouth guard offers the best protection for your smile.
Who Should Wear Mouthguards?
Mouthguards are recommended for individuals who are involved in contact sports such as rugby and boxing, in which one can easily suffer an injury. They are also ideal for children and adults who play basketball, softball, baseball, volleyball, soccer, or who wrestle.
The Benefits of Custom-fitted Mouthguards
Mouthguards that are provided by your dentist are fabricated by taking an impression of your teeth. This type of mouthguard provides superior protection for your teeth and fits perfectly on them. The precise fit amplifies the functionality of the mouthpiece while allowing you to talk and breathe comfortably.
