MOUTHGUARD SEASON IS HERE

RSS

Many well established associations give support to the need for custom fitted or specialised mouth-guards and now is the time to send reminders to your clients and even local sporting teams. 

The Australian Dental Association reports thousands of people are treated for dental injuries that could have been avoided with protective custom fitted mouth-guards. 

Mouthguards help to protect not only the teeth but the lips, tongue, cheeks, gums and may shield the brain from concussion by acting as a shock absorber. 

The Academy for Sports Dentistry suggests a custom-made mouthguard as they:

  • Provide the most protection and comfort.

  • Cover all teeth and cushion the jaw.

  • Has no interference with speech or breathing.

  • Is adjustable for all sports.

Or for those with braces consider our ready made options.
