Custom sports mouth guards Miranda Suthe

Custom made mouth guards

Our teeth are very vulnerable when participating in contact sports and sporting activities account for the greatest majority of dental injuries. A custom made mouth guard is a great way of protecting your teeth, an impression of your teeth is taken and we make a mouth guard that is fitted snugly to your teeth while contouring your gums, ensuring a complete and secure protection from impact. Pharmacies and sporting goods stores often offer cheaper versions and although they are better than no mouth guard at all, they offer very little protection.
Losing a tooth or teeth in sports can be painful and potentially very expensive. A mouthguard will significantly reduce the chance of having to restore your smile. In addition to protecting teeth, a correctly fitted mouthguard cushions a sudden impact and can help minimise jaw injuries as well as reduce the chance of being knocked unconscious.
Especially important for children, mouth guards protect developing teeth and facial bone structure. If your child’s tooth is fractured, knocked out or they sustain a jaw injury, it can cause a range of dental complications that may require extensive long-term restorative procedures.
