Sports Mouthguards

Are you into sports?

Many contact sports pose a serious risk of dental injuries. To make things worse, such injuries are difficult to treat as there is a crucial window of time to see a dentist after a tooth or mouth trauma has been inflicted during a sports activity.

While no one likes to think about getting hurt, accidents happen. That’s why it’s important to take precautions to protect yourself from serious injuries while playing sports. A properly fitted mouthguard can help reduce the risk of teeth being broken, fractured, cracked, or knocked out. It can also prevent cuts to your lips, the inside of the cheeks your palate and your tongue.

Mouthguards are essential in any sport or activity where there is the potential for contact with other players or objects. Dentists recommend mouthguard use during games and practise for both recreational and competitive athletes.

Some contact sports require mouthguards. These include rugby union and league, the AFL, hockey, boxing, and martial arts. However, even in other sports that are often referred to as non-contact there’s still a high risk of accidental collision that can cause damage to the teeth and mouth. Such sports may include cricket, basketball, netball, and skating.

How Does a Sports Mouthguard Work?

They act as a shock absorber, distributing the force of impact throughout the protector rather than concentrating it in one area. This helps to prevent not only minor injuries, such as cuts on the lips and cheeks, but more serious problems as well, such as fractured teeth and a broken jaw. At Happy Dentistry, we can’t overemphasise the importance of wearing mouthguards while you engage in sports.

Why It’s Important to Have Custom Made Mouthguards

For maximum tooth and mouth protection, it would be best to get custom mouthguards made by an experienced dentist. They are designed specifically to fit the contours of your mouth, making them more comfortable to wear than store bought alternatives. Custom mouthguards also make it easier for you to breathe and speak.

At Happy Dentistry, we have seen first hand the damage that can be done to the teeth because of a sports injury. On top of the physical pain, such an experience can also cause undue stress to both the patient and their family.

That’s why we offer mouthguards that are made just for you. They are fabricated to fit your mouth perfectly and help lower the chance of a dental injury.
