Sports guard Mouth guardMouthguards

We get many patients throughout the year who present with many avoidable sports dental injuries. Usually the severity of the injury can be minimized or completely avoided, by wearing a professionally fitted mouth guard.

Who needs one?

Mouthguards are recommended for any one involved in sport and a custom fitted mouthguard can be professionally made in the dental office to suit the demands of the sport and the athlete. A mouthguard generally covers the upper teeth and offers protection for the teeth, alveolar bone and soft tissue.

A mouthguard should

  • Fit well
  • Be comfortable
  • Be durable and easy to clean
  • Not restrict speech and breathing
  • Be kept in the mouthguard box when not in use
  • Be checked by the dentist at your regular check ups for wear, tear and fit.

Usually a collision, or knock to the face can cause broken/chipped teeth, internal tooth damage, jaw fractures, concussion and soft tissue trauma, sometimes making it expensive and painful to get the teeth back to normal function and appearance.

When should a mouth guard be worn?

Whenever playing (or training) a contact sport, where an injury might occur.
