Choosing the Right Mouthguard For You

 In News

Imagine what it would be like if you suddenly lost one or two of your front teeth… smiling, talking, eating – everything would suddenly be affected. The best solution is to be proactive. It’s important to protect your teeth when possible. Mouthguards can do just that! They help cushion a blow to the face, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face or jaw. Mouthguards can be worn during any contact sport or activity where there is a risk of an injury to the face e.g. football, hockey, volleyball, soccer, basketball etc.

The material of a mouthguard helps to absorb the shock and lessen the force applied to your teeth, jaws or skull accordingly. A mouthguard also provides a barrier between the braces or your teeth and your cheek or lips, which will help you avoid injuries to your gums and cheeks.

Types of Mouthguards available:

  • Custom fitted 

  • Boil and Bite 

  • Ready-made

Points to Consider

  • Take the mouthguard along to your dental visits to ensure it still meets your needs correctly.

  • Mouthguards need to be rinsed in cold water before use and cleaned after use. 

  • Mouthguards should be kept in a cool place as they can distort if left in the sun or hot water.
