It only takes one trip, one bump, one collision during sport for you to do permanent damage to your teeth. With this in consideration this is why we strongly suggest the use of protective gear during high impact sports - this includes both adults and children.
The dental treatments following dental injuries can be very involved, costly, and lengthy. Wearing a custom fitted mouthguard can prevent most of these dental injuries.
Custom fitted mouthguard should be worn at all times when you participate in playing and training for any type of sports that have a risk of injury to the face. It is like having a different sporting gears for different sports that's needed for maximum protection.
A mouthguard helps to absorb the shock and spread the impact. This minimises injuries against head and neck injuries, including teeth, jaw, and soft tissues.
Bring your mouthguard with you to your regular dental check-up appointment for it to be reviewed by the dentist regularly to ensure the fit is snug.
To maximise the longevity, keep your mouthguard in a plastic container, avoid direct sunlight, and rinse regularly under cold soapy water.
