When playing high contact sport, accidents can happen, using a dental mouthguard can prevent tooth damage and loss when an accident occurs. Just one small impact to the face can cause major dental injuries or even knock out one or more teeth, so it is important to protect your teeth to prevent these injuries. At Prevent Dental our Dentists in Kallangur offer custom mouthguards, so your child can play sport knowing their mouth will be kept safe with the very best protection available
Why is a custom mouthguard important for sports?
Sports mouthguards are popular for good reason. They are very useful for preventing injuries in high-contact games like footy, rugby, basketball or boxing but did you know wearing a mouthguard is beneficial in a lot of different situations? To name a few:
- In athletics to prevent injury from falls and contact with equipment
- In injury-prone recreational activities such as cycling or skateboarding
- To prevent kids’ dental and jaw injuries during sports and play activities
- To prevent grinding at night
This form of protection is available to people of all ages, you can even get a custom mouthguard for braces. In comparison to other mouthguards, while any level of protection is good in impact sports, a custom mouthguard will likely be more durable and more comfortable as it is tailored to your mouth.
