Every year, thousands of people are treated for dental injuries which could have been prevented, or the severity minimised, by wearing a protective mouthguard.
ANYONE – adult or child – who participates in a sport that carries a risk of contact to the face should wear a mouthguard.
A mouthguard helps to absorb the shock experienced by a blow to the face which might otherwise result in an injury to the mouth or jaw. A heavy collision can result in chipped or broken teeth, internal damage to a tooth, tooth loss, injuries to the soft tissue in the mouth, and in severe cases, concussion or a broken jaw.
Injuries like these can lead to long and potentially expensive treatment to restore teeth and the mouth back to normal function and appearance.
Wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard while participating in sports is vitally important to help prevent dental injuries.A custom-fitted mouthguard is made by your dentist using an impression taken of your teeth.
Custom fitting allows the dentist to accurately assess your mouth to provide the best fit, size, coverage and thickness of the mouthguard made especially for you!
Custom fitted mouthguards are comfortable, allow you to talk freely, have maximum resistance against dislodging and should not restrict breathing.
At Goodison Dental Services, we can customise your mouthguard to a variety of colours, from your favourite football team to sparkles!
