Anyone playing any contact sports is vulnerable to injury and trauma, especially to the teeth. While there are a multitude of mouthguards available at sporting goods stores; however, it is important to ensure a mouthguard fits properly. Only a well-fitted, customised mouthguard can protect your teeth. This because a customised mouthguard spreads the impact from contact, thereby reducing the risk of damage to your teeth.
While mouthguards are mandatory in contact sports such as boxing where the risk of injury is likely. Dentists recommend mouth guards for children and adults involved incidental contact sports such as basketball, wrestling, soccer and volleyball to prevent sports related injuries.
Injuries like knocked out, loosened or damaged teeth need long visits to the dentist and often expensive. Avoid unnecessary expenses by opting for a personalised mouthguard.
