What are Custom Mouthguards?
Custom mouthguards, otherwise called sports mouthguards, are custom fitted protective gears worn by athletes. Custom mouthguards are made of resilient materials fitted to a model of the person’s teeth. The most effective and in demand mouthguards in the market are those that are lightweight, easy to clean, comfortable and tear resistant. They must not also hamper speech or breathing while ensuring maximum protection of the teeth and the oro-facial structures.
Why Have a Custom-Made Mouthguard?
Custom mouthguards are crucial for preventing dento-alveolar trauma, teeth getting knocked out and jaw fractures. Every year thousands of Australians damage their teeth, gums or jaws while playing sports and many times these injuries could have been avoided or minimised had a custom mouthguard been worn. Even though it is possible to buy an over-the-counter mouthguard relatively cheaply, these offer very little protection and can be uncomfortable to wear.
When you visit Lakeside Dental Spa for your custom mouthguard we will design it to offer maximum protection during your chosen sport. We are always far rather help your natural teeth last longer than have to repair or replace them and mouthguards are a great way for us to do so.
