Imagine what it would be like if you suddenly lost one or two of your front teeth. Smiling, talking, eating—everything would suddenly be affected. Knowing how to prevent injuries to your mouth and face is especially important if you participate in organised sports or other recreational activities.
Mouthguards, also called mouth protectors, help cushion a blow to the face, minimising the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face, or jaw. They typically cover the upper teeth and are a great way to protect the soft tissues of your tongue, lips and cheek lining.
When Should You Wear a Mouthguard?
When it comes to protecting your mouth, especially your teeth and jaws, a sports mouthguard is an essential piece of athletic gear that should be part of your standard equipment from an early age.
While collision and contact sports, such as rugby, boxing, hockey are higher-risk sports for the mouth, any athlete may experience a dental injury in non-contact activities too, such as gymnastics and skating.
Custom fit mouthguards are made by your dentist for you personally.
They are individually created for fit and comfort.
