Are you or a loved one an avid sports person? Have you got your teeth properly protected?
A professionally fitted mouth guard will protect your entire mouth, as it cushions any blows or falls by distributing the force of the impact. Your teeth are very important and sports like netball, hockey and football may increase the risk of injury to your gum tissues and your teeth.
All too often, we see injuries to teeth due to contact sports and people wearing ill-fitting mouth guards or no mouth guard at all. These injuries can be painful, costly and can result in multiple dental visits. With the support and protection of a professionally made and custom fit mouth guard, you can avoid this scenario altogether!
You might have already seen non-custom or generic mouth guards in the market. Because your teeth need to be protected to the highest standard, avoid these as they are ill fitting and offer little protection, if any.
To have a professional mouth guard made is very simple and painless and there are many colours and designs to choose from. Why not choose your team colours? We can also have your name and phone number clearly marked into the mouth guard for you as well.
Some children who play sports may also be at the awkward stage of losing teeth. We take this into consideration when making mouth guards for our younger patients and there are some simple measures we can put into place to ensure the mouth guard can still fit them well after the teeth have fallen out and new teeth begin to grow!
Your first initial appointment will include having some dental impressions taken using dental putty. This is a quick appointment and very easily done. A week later you will be able to come in and pick up your new mouthguard. When you pick up your mouthguard we will make sure that you are happy with the colour and fit and are able to insert it easily.
