02 Feb Why Mouthguards are So Important to Protect Your Teeth
Being out in the fresh air and playing sports is great, but it puts you at risk of dental injuries. A blow to the mouth can chip, crack or even knock out a tooth entirely, leaving you with a painful and potentially costly problem to correct. A sports mouthguard is an easy and effective way to help protect your teeth. While you can buy mouthguards very cheaply over-the-counter, these offer minimal protection at best and tend to be very uncomfortable to wear.
Why Choose a Custom-Made Mouthguard?
Our custom-fitted mouthguards are completely different. They are made from a tough material that is neutral tasting and odour free and provides your teeth and jaws with maximum protection. Your mouthguard will be comfortable yet will fit tightly around your teeth so it cannot fall out and will not cause gagging. You will be able to breathe and swallow normally, and you can also speak clearly! Because your mouthguard is comfortable to wear, you are far more likely to use it every time. Also, custom-fitted mouthguards are easy to care for as you just need to rinse the mouthguard in soap and water after each use, allowing it to dry naturally. We can assess the condition of your mouthguard regularly during your checkups to ensure it is still fitting properly and is offering the correct support.
