Sporting accidents are one of the most common causes of dental injury. Every year thousands of people, including children, are treated for dental injuries that could have been avoided or minimised by wearing a protective, custom-fitted mouthguard.
Damaged or knocked out teeth, broken jaws and cut lips can be sustained when playing sport. Wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard helps to absorb and spread the impact of a blow to your face, which might otherwise result in an injury to your mouth or jaw.
Dental injuries can result in time off school or work. They can be painful and disfiguring, and may involve lengthy and complex dental treatment. The cost of injury to your teeth or jaw far exceeds the cost of a custom-fitted mouthguard.
A properly fitted mouth guard prevents structural damage to your teeth and jaw, and protects against lacerations to your cheeks, tongue and lips. Recent research also shows that mouth guards decrease the risk of concussions.
Venus Denture Clinic can provide you with the highest level of comfort and protection with a custom fitted mouth guard. Even though over-the-counter mouth guards are available in pharmacies and sporting goods stores, these do not offer the best level of protection. For the highest degree of protection, a custom made mouth guard is the best choice. It is manufactured based on an impression of the upper jaw, thus providing the perfect fit.
During sport, the slight bite print into the mouth guard stabilises the teeth in the lower jaw. Wearing a mouth guard significantly reduces the risk of injury to lips, teeth, jaws and the temporomandibular joint. The impact is absorbed elastically and distributed with less force over a time delay.
