Sporting accidents are one of the most common causes of dental injury.
Wearing a protective custom-fitted mouthguard whilst playing contact sports can help to avoid dental injuries. Custom-fitted mouthguards provide a better fit than other varieties, as they are made to suit your individual needs. When made by your dentist, a custom-fitted mouthguard is:
- Allows you to speak clearly
- Won’t shift or fall out
- Won’t restrict your breathing
The lifetime cost of teeth that are traumatized can be enormous, so prevention of trauma is the best option.
