With the new sporting year kicking off many parents are considering mouthguards to help minimise possible injury.
Mouthguards absorb the shock experienced by a blow to the face, which might otherwise result in an injury to the mouth or jaw. A heavy collision can result in chipped or broken teeth, internal damage to a tooth, tooth loss, injuries to the soft tissue of the mouth, and, in severe cases, concussion or a broken jaw.
Dental injuries can result in time off school or work to recover, can be painful and disfiguring, and may involve lengthy and complex dental treatment to restore teeth and the mouth back to normal function and appearance. The cost of an injury to your teeth or jaw far exceeds the cost of a custom-fitted mouthguard.
