Mouthguards Prevent Dental Injuries

Mouthguards protect against injury to the teeth and jaw. As each person’s mouth is different, a one-size-fits-all approach to a mouthguard leaves you with sub-par protection. A mouthguard that doesn’t fit properly could lead to even more damage. Custom-fitted mouthguards help prevent dental injuries and injuries to the jaw. Customized sports mouthguards also help reduce risk of concussion, pulpal injury & tooth loss. These Mouthguards function by mitigating the stress on the teeth as they absorb the dangerous shock vibrations.

An injury suffered in sport can have a lasting effect. It’s not just the prospect of losing a tooth (though that is certainly worth avoiding). Many people have seen their athletic careers or trajectories cut short due to injury. Sustaining a major injury such as concussion or broken jaw during youth can dramatically alter one’s future. Properly fitted mouthguards mitigate the risk for injury and its severity.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can happen if you don’t wear a mouthguard during contact sports?

There are many dental trauma injuries that could happen when playing contact sports without a mouthguard. A blow to the lower jaw can cause the upper and lower jaw to slam together. This puts a large amount of stress on the teeth which can cause cracks and breaks. This can also cause jaw fractures, TMJ joint damage, and concussions.

Can I soak my mouthguard in mouthwash?

Do not soak a mouthguard in mouthwash. Over time, it will cause damage to the mouthguard which will affect the fit and the protection it offers. Instead, gently brush the mouthguard with a soft bristle toothbrush and toothpaste and rinse with cold water.

Should a mouthguard be tight?

A custom mouthguard should have a snug fit against the teeth. If you need to bite or clench your teeth in order to keep the mouthguard in place, then it isn’t fitted properly. See us to have adjustments made or the mouthguard remoulded.

Is a custom mouthguard worth it?

Absolutely. It may cost more than anything that can be found in a sporting goods store, but a custom mouthguard offers a better, more comfortable fit and doesn’t interfere with air flow and breathing even during vigorous exercises and activities. Also, the methods and materials used to make it provide much better protection than a traditional boil-and-bite mouthguard.

How long do custom mouthguards last?

The general rule of thumb is that a custom mouthguard should be replaced once a year. A mouthguard may need to be replaced more or less frequently depending on how often it is used, and how the mouthguard is cleaned, stored and maintained.
