Protecting your teeth so you can go out and play
Knocked out, loosened or damaged teeth are a regular occurrence in sport, needing long visits to the dentist and often a life time of treatment for the affected tooth. Worse, in some cases, missing teeth may need to be replaced with dental implants or dentures.
A well-fitted, customised mouthguard can protect your teeth and jaw by spreading the impact from contact, reducing the risk of damage to your teeth.
Why invest in a customised mouthguard?
Store bought mouth guards are rarely a perfect fit, can dislodge easily and may not offer best protection from severe impact on your teeth and jaws.
The cost of a mouthguard fitted by a dentist is a good insurance against the possible costs of reconstructive surgery or emergency dental work from a sports accident. Custom-fitted mouthguards can have up to two layers of vinyl material, fitting snugly around your teeth, no matter how crowded they are.
They ensure you can breathe well, absorb any shock of impact to your teeth and jaws and are retained well in your mouth. Custom-fitted mouthguards are more durable than over-the-counter ones, plus you can customise them even further with your team colours, name tags or pictures.
Avoid unnecessary expense by making an appointment with your National Dental Care dentist to protect your teeth with a personalised mouthguard.
