What is the function of a mouthguard?
Mouthguards act as a cushion to help protect your teeth from chipping and breaking. Broken jaws, neck injuries, lacerations of gums and tongue, and concussion may also be reduced. Wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard helps to absorb and spread the impact of a blow to your face, reducing the risk of a serious injury.
What are the advantages of a custom-fitted mouthguard?
Custom-fitted mouthguards provide a better fit than other pre-molded, off- the-shelf guards, therefore offering the best protection for your teeth, mouth and jaw. Your custom-fitted mouthguard from our dentists will be:
- Well fitting
- Allows you to speak clearly
- Will not shift or fall out
- Will not restrict your breathing
Dental injuries can be very costly, hence most active people find it is worthwhile investing in a custom-fitted mouthguard.
