Mouth protectors are an important piece of athletic equipment for anyone actively participating in a sport that involves falls and physical contact. Children and adults who play contact sports, particularly rugby and hockey are vulnerable to injuries or blows to the mouth. These can result in broken or lost teeth, problems associated with the jaw joint, dislocation of the jaw and possible concussion.
Mouth guards should be used in any activity that might result in an injury to the mouth.
In order to help prevent such injuries it is imperative that a sports guard is worn. The sports guard should dissipate the load generated by an external impact to the jaw thus minimise any injury.
Sports mouth guard is a specially made, rubber-like cover which fits exactly over your teeth and gums, cushioning and protecting them from damage.
The best type of sports guard is a custom made. It will fit correctly onto the teeth thus offering increased breathing ability and durability.
For a custom made sports mouth guard two appointments are necessary. The first appointment to take impressions for the guard, the second to fit and adjust as necessary.
Our aim at The Cullen Dental Practice is to provide the very best treatment and advice for our patients.
We offer a comprehensive service for patients who require new sports mouth guards or replacement of existing mouth protectors. Please contact us for a no obligation assessment.
