Busting the Myth That Only Athletes Need Mouthguards

person getting a custom mouthguard madeIt’s a common myth that mouthguards are only necessary for athletes who play contact sports like footy or rugby. But the truth is, anyone can benefit from wearing a mouthguard-even if they don’t participate in high-impact activities! That’s because there are plenty of other ways to injure your teeth, gums and jaw without physical contact.

For instance, mouthguards can help protect teeth from accidental forces such as grinding teeth, biting down on hard objects, and contact with other hard surfaces.

A Precise Fit for Optimal Protection

Wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard can help minimise the risk of serious injury, as well as protect against broken teeth, facial damage, and concussion.

Our custom-made dental mouthguards provide the best protection for your teeth, whether or not you’re active. We use mouth casts to fit the guard precisely to your teeth and mouth.

Protect Your Investment

Another reason why you may want to get a mouthguard is to protect your valuable restorations. If you have crowns, veneers, or other types of prosthetic dental work, a mouthguard is essential to protect your pearly whites.
