Protecting your smile at play
Sports Mouthguards Campbelltown
Do you participate in any contact sports?
You should speak with your dentist about receiving a custom-made mouthguard if this is the case. A mouthguard will protect your teeth and gums if you are hit in the face.
Don’t let an emergency dentist appointment ruin your holiday season.
The best method to safeguard your smile is to invest in a comfortable mouthguard that allows you to perform at your best.
Various Sports-Related Dental Injuries
Typical dental injuries sustained while participating in sports or leisure activities include:
- broken jaw
- broken teeth
- chipped teeth
- cut cheeks
- cut gums
- cut lips
- cuts to the tongue or face
- knocked-out teeth
A custom-fitted mouthguard is a crucial piece of your gear from an early age when it comes to safeguarding your mouth.
While collision and contact sports, like boxing, carry a higher risk of tooth injuries, non-contact sports, like gymnastics and skating, also pose a danger.
Custom-made mouthguards from your dentist are the best mouthguards to use.
Your Campbelltown dentist will make you a mouthguard to fit your needs. To make a mouthguard that fits your unique dental and oral structure, they will make a mould of your teeth.
As a result of being uniquely designed to fit the shape of your upper teeth, custom mouthguards provide you with the greatest level of protection.
As a result, they fit significantly better than stock or boil-and-bite mouthguards, are more comfortable, and are more difficult to remove while you’re sleeping unintentionally.
A personalised mouthguard is your best choice if you clench your teeth, snore, or have sleep apnoea.
At-home Care for Mouthguards
To properly care for your mouthguard, follow these easy steps:
- Before and after each usage, rinse your mouthguard with cold water or a mouthrinse.
- For storage and transport, put the mouthguard in a sturdy, perforated container. This permits airflow and guards against mouthguard damage.
- To minimise distortion, shield the mouthguard from severe temperatures.
- Examine the mouthguard for signs of general wear. Have it replaced immediately if you discover any tears or holes in it or if it becomes loose or hurts.
- Bring the mouthguard with you each time you see your Campbelltown dentist for a check-up.
