Sports Mouthguard Ballarat
Dental injuries can often occur while playing sports and are painful and expensive to treat. Mouthguards play a crucial role in protecting your teeth and at My Dentist Ballarat, we offer custom-fitted mouth guards which can reduce the risk of dental injuries.
What kind of dental injuries can occur during sports?
There are some common kinds of dental injuries such as cracked teeth, cut lips, cut gums, knocked out teeth, a broken jaw and fractured roots which can be a result of participation in sports.
What are sports mouth guards?
Sports mouthguards or mouth protectors are devices that you can wear over your teeth while playing sports to protect your teeth and face. They are an important piece of equipment for anyone participating in sports that involve falls, body contact or flying equipment.
Mouthguards cover the upper teeth and are designed to protect your mouth from any incoming force. Your dentist may also suggest mouth guards for your lower teeth if you are undergoing orthodontic treatment on your lower jaw.
Types of Mouthguards
Custom-made mouthguards — these are individually designed by your dentist or in a professional dental lab. Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth and design the mouth guard accordingly to maximise comfort.
