Most dental trauma occurs when children are playing contact sport or mixed martial arts and get hit by a ball or fall to the ground. Often such trauma results in the premature loss of a tooth or the dislodgment of other teeth. To protect against the risk of injury, sports mouth guards are recommended.
Sports mouthguards help protect teeth and gums from injury. This will provide a layer of cushion for their teeth, lips, and gums should they come into contact with anything. Also, mouthguards have been shown to reduce the risk of concussions. We can provide your child with a custom-made mouthguard so they can be comfortable, protected, and keep their mind on the game/match. If your child participates in basketball, boxing, hockey, football, gymnastics, martial arts, racquetball, rugby, track and field, skateboarding, skiing and snowboarding, skydiving, soccer, surfing, volleyball, water polo, weightlifting or wrestling, it is recommended by the Australian Dental Association that protective equipment is worn to protect the mouth.
