A mouthguard is a rubber plate which is moulded to fit precisely over your teeth and gums. It helps to cushion your mouth and protect it from damage. It is important to wear a mouthguard when involved in a sport or activity which involves physical contact or the risk of being hit by fast moving objects, for example boxing, rugby, hockey and cricket, to name just a few. In fact, it is often compulsory to wear a mouthguard while taking part in certain sports.
Advantages of a professional Mouthguard:
Enhanced tooth edge protection:
A unique feature of the Mouthguard is that it has additional thickness of material surrounding the vulnerable biting edges of the top teeth providing additional protection from a sudden impact.
Prevents concussion of the brain:
The Mouthguard is supplied with indentation in its biting surface to accommodate the tips of the bottom teeth so that in the event of an impact to the lower jaw it is safely immobilized preventing reverberation of the brain.
Adjustable to allow for changing teeth and orthodontic treatment:
The Mouthguard can be remoulded by your dentist to accomodate new teeth or movement of teeth. No need to buy a new mouthguard for slight changes in the mouth.
All these are major safety points often omitted on inferior mouthguards. All our mouthguards are supplied with a protective carry case for your convenience.
