Why Mouthguards Are So Important to Protect Your Teeth - Brisbane City Dentist | Mary Street Dental | Brisbane CBD Dentist

If you or your family love to play sports, it’s important to make sure everybody’s teeth are protected with a well-fitting mouthguard. A mouthguard helps cushion unwanted blows to the mouth, reducing the risk of chipped, broken or knocked-out teeth. The consequences of a dental injury can be long-lasting, potentially resulting in a lifetime of restorative dental care. It’s far cheaper and a lot less traumatic to invest in a custom mouthguard.

Why Choose a Custom Mouthguard?

Our mouthguards are made from high quality, durable, tear-resistant material that is odour and taste-free. They are custom-made to fit closely around teeth, providing maximum protection against dental injuries. Also, because they are custom-made, they do not affect speech or breathing and will not fall out. Although you can buy stock mouthguards cheaply over-the-counter, these provide little protection and can often affect breathing and speech because they are ill-fitting.

Caring for Custom Mouthguards

When you have a custom mouthguard, we suggest you bring it with you to your checkups so we can assess its fit, and can ensure it continues providing excellent protection. Adult mouthguards tend to last for quite a while, but a child’s mouthguard needs replacing more frequently because their teeth and jaws are developing. It’s still a small price to pay for protecting their teeth and jaws.
