Mouthguards help to minimize the risk of injury to the face, teeth, jaw and head when involved in active or contact sports. Dental injuries can occur at any age. Up to 40 per cent of these injuries in older adolescents and adults occur during active recreation/leisure activities. Mouthguards have been shown to reduce trauma to teeth, gums, and the surrounding jawbone, as well as decrease injury to the temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and the intensity and number of concussions. Mouthguards also reduce the pressure and bone deformation of the skull when a force is directed to the chin. Mouthguards are recommended for anyone engaging in aggressive activities or when practising or competing in sports.
Custom Mouthgaurd For You!
At Floss Dental Collective, we will create you a custom-fitted mouthguard. These are considered to provide the best protection due to their close fit, comfort and cushioning (shock absorption) effect, in comparison to the non-custom (boil and bite) type mouthguards.
A well-fitting custom mouthguard is comfortable and will not interfere with breathing and swallowing during physical activity.
