A custom-made mouthguard should be considered an essential part of any sports kit for both adults and children who participate in any contact sport or activity where there is a risk of facial injury.
At Tuart Hill Dental, we offer gap-free mouthguards for anyone that has ancillary cover attached to their private health insurer.
The Australian Dental association strongly recommends investing in a custom-fitted mouthguard from your dentist as they provide maximum protection.
Mouthguards for children are vitally important for the protection of gums, jaws and teeth that are still developing.
Mouthguards do more than protect your teeth from being knocked out, chipped or fractured by a heavy blow; they protect your gum tissue, tongue, lips, cheeks and jawbones. A professionally fitted mouthguard can also help prevent sustaining a concussion.
At Tuart Hill Dental our dentists can customise a mouthguard for you or your children in a variety of colours efficiently and cost effectively. A well-fitted mouthguard will allow you to speak and breathe easier than an over the counter “boil and bite” one that offers only minimal protection to your mouth and smile.
For more information about the importance of wearing a mouthguard for either you or your child when participating in sporting activities please visit the Australian Dental Association website: http://www.mouthguardawareness.info
