Sports Mouthguards Cabramatta
Mouthguards are dental devices worn to protect the soft tissues of the mouth and teeth when engaging in contact sports and recreational activities.
This protective dental appliance absorbs the blow and softens it in an accident.
Here are a few mishaps that mouthguards can drastically reduce:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Fractured/cracked tooth
- Knocked out or avulsed tooth
- Broken or chipped tooth
- Loose tooth
The best mouthguards are those that are created just for you. They are made in a dental clinic or specialised laboratory and are customised for each wearer.
A mouthguard is made from an impression of your teeth created by your Cabramatta dentist using a mould.
Although a custom-made mouthguard is more expensive than other choices, it offers the most comfort and protection.
Most mouthguards protect the upper teeth, but depending on additional protective gear, your oral health, and your sport, your dentist may also advise wearing one to protect the lower teeth.
At-home Care for Mouthguards
Take care of your mouthguard by following these easy steps:
- When you use your mouthguard, wash it with cold water or a mouthrinse.
- To store and travel the mouthguard, put it inside a sturdy, perforated box. This permits airflow and shields the mouthguard from harm.
- Avoid exposing the mouthguard to high temperatures to reduce distortion.
- Look for general wear on the mouthguard. Replace it immediately if you discover any holes or tears in it, if it becomes loose or hurts.
- Bring the mouthguard to each regular dental checkup so your Cabramatta dentist can examine it.
