mouthguards as a preventive measure against dental emergencies

As Cabramatta’s emergency dentist, Cabramatta Dental Care has come across an enormous range of dental injuries stemming from all sorts of activities.

Amongst active youth, and youth-at-heart, they are common, and it is part of our skill set to remedy the situation quickly and effectively on behalf of our clients.

However, it is important to note that a strikingly high number of these injuries could have been prevented with a mouthguard.

Play it safe! Mouthguards can make all the difference!

Oddly, mouthguards were not developed with oral protection in mind. They were intended to prevent the lips of a boxer from being cut upon impacting their teeth during a match.

It was quickly noted, however, that they were also excellent at preventing a variety of injuries to your teeth and the surrounding soft tissues.

Mouthguards work to soften both direct impacts with your mouth and the ‘snapping’ action of a jaw shutting under pressure.

They have become standard gear for a huge variety of sports, and not only the more predictable ones, such as rugby or football – they have also found their way into sports such as basketball and cricket.

Part of the reason for this broad usage is preventative. While contact isn’t as common in these sports, accidents happen, and unexpected contact can be considerably more dangerous than anticipated.

At Cabramatta Dental Care, we make sure to provide well-fitted and secure mouthguards, which can guard against the need for a visit to your emergency dentist in Cabramatta.

Of course, your mouthguard will do little to prevent injuries if it stays on the sidelines, so make sure you and your aspiring sportsmen and women are using it.
