Mouthguards

According to the Australian Dental Association (ADA), about one-third of traumatic injuries to teeth are sports-related. Sports Medicine Association Australia suggests that 50% of children experience some form of dental injury.

 

With so many Australians having a passion for sport, whether it’s playing footy or netball, skateboarding or even cycling. The excitement of playing sports can quickly stop when an injury occurs though, whether it’s a collision on the field, a tumble on a street or equipment failure – the risk of contact to the face and teeth is an ever-present danger. To minimise this risk, it’s a good idea to wear a mouthguard.

 

A mouthguard is a thick, often spongy shield that fits over your teeth. Mouthguard's are usually worn during sports and other activities that involve a high risk of impact to the face and help prevent injuries which can result in a loss of one or more teeth, broken or chipped teeth, jaw fractures or injuries to the soft tissue of the mouth. 

 

The good news is that we can create a custom-fitted mouthguard which will help protect yourself against dental injuries whilst getting competitive on the field.
