Every year thousands of children are treated for dental injuries, which could have been prevented, or severity minimised by wearing a protective mouthguard.
A mouthguard helps to absorb the shock experienced by a blow to the face, which might otherwise result in a injury to the mouth or jaw. A heavy collision can result in chipped or broken teeth, internal damage to a tooth, tooth loss, injuries to the gums an in severe cases a broken jaw. Anyone who participates in a sport that carries a risk of contact to the face should wear a mouthguard.
The Australian Dental Association recommends:
- Wearing mouthguards that have been professionally custom-fitted
- Checking your mouthguard every 12months for optimal fit and protection
- Keeping your mouthguard in a rigid container away from heat to prevent distortion
