Wearing mouthguards will significantly help prevent unnecessary sports injuries in children and adults.
With sporting activities such a major part of many Australian’s lives, a mouthguard should be an essential part of the sports kit.
Whilst you may be concerned about cuts, bruises and broken bones, have you thought about broken, fractured or displaced teeth?
There are many instances of sports players requiring an Emergency Dental Appointment as a result of damage done to their teeth during a game.
In some cases your tooth may even ‘die’ due to nerve damage.
If you receive a knock to the mouth then there is a fair chance that you will have damaged your teeth and this damage may or may not be initially visible.
It is for this reason that we recommend you wear custom-made, correctly fitted mouthguards during all contact sports, including training sessions.
At Sunshine Coast Smile Centre in Maroochydore, Mouthguards can be made for adults and children alike.
They are comfortable due to their snug fit, and allow you to speak and breathe easily. They can also be made in a variety of fashionable colours. There is no better way to protect your smile during contact sports.
