To put it simply, a custom mouthguard is made specifically to fit your mouth which means it will give you better protection and also be a lot more comfortable.
The Australian Dental Association recommends wearing a custom made mouthguard, and unlike an over the counter mouthguard, a custom made mouthguard provides superior protection and comfort.
Mouthguards only work if you wear them! That’s why comfort is critical. A custom made mouthguard offers superior protection for your teeth, gums and BRAIN!
What does a mouthguard have to do with the brain?
By reducing the impact of the jaw against the base of the skull, a well-made mouthguard greatly reduces the risk of concussion type injuries to the brain. Protecting the teeth is an added bonus!
Wearing an appropriately designed mouthguard whilst participating in sport will assist against dental and brain injuries. Anyone involved in sports and activities where there is a risk of an injury to the face or head should protect themselves with a properly fitted mouthguard.
Things to remember
Sport, leisure and recreation activities are the most common cause of dental injuries. A custom fitted mouthguard is the best protection for your teeth, lips and jaw. The cost of an injury far exceeds the cost of a mouthguard. Remember with care and protection natural teeth should last a lifetime. So give your teeth a sporting chance. Wear a mouthguard.
