Mouthguards provide an important layer of protection for the teeth while participating in physical activities that carry a risk of dental injury. Dental injuries are commonly suffered during sport, leisure and recreational activities and can be painful, require extensive treatment and possibly be quite expensive.
Both ‘off the shelf’ and ‘boil and bite’ mouthguards purchased from sporting stores or pharmacies tend to be bulky, ill fitting and provide inadequate protection especially for back teeth and can impede breathing and speech.
Custom fitted mouthguards on the other hand provide a high level of protection and comfort. It fits snugly into position and stays in place during activity, preventing the mouthguard from moving around in the mouth and allowing the wearer to breathe and communicate easily. A custom fitted mouthguard provides the correct level of protection consistently across all teeth. It is a small investment to help reduce the risk of dental injury during physical activities including protection against concussion, jaw damage and loss of teeth.
