Injuries to the teeth can be painful, disfiguring and costly! Each year too many children and adults injure their teeth during sport, which may have been reduced or prevented with a well fitting custom mouthguard from your dentist.
Mouthguards are shown to reduce the severity and damage caused by a blow to the face. A custom mouthguard made by your dentist at Chermside Family Dental provides important protection to the teeth and jaws of the mouth. This helps to absorb the shock of a blow to the face which otherwise could chip teeth, damage the soft tissues of the mouth, or worse.
Investing in a mouthguard may prevent these costly and difficult treatments required to restore teeth back to normal function and appearance. Plus the custom sports mouthguard is more comfortable, stays in place well – and perhaps you could even choose the colour! Let us know if you’ve got certain team colours or even a logo in mind.
Custom mouthguards are recommended for contact sports such as football, rugby, soccer, martial arts and boxing. You should also consider a mouthguard for sports where contact is likely, such as baseketball, waterpolo, volleyball and hockey.
