Custom-made mouthguard to protect your teeth.
Sport a Game Winning Smile
By their very nature, contact sports carry a risk of dental injury in some form or another. That’s why we can provide our patients with a custom-made mouthguard to protect against damage to your teeth and help prevent other facial injuries as well.
The most common injury associated with contact heavy sports is damage caused to the upper incisors which can lead to the permanent (‘adult’) teeth being fractured, discoloured or even lost.
Mouth protectors that are properly fitted can significantly reduce the risk of jaw cracks and broken teeth by preventing the lower jaw from slamming into the upper jaw. They also help prevent cuts and wounding of the lips and cheeks by moving soft tissue in the mouth away from the teeth, particularly if you wear braces or a fixed dental appliance.
Getting Your Custom Made Mouthguard
At DJ Maguire Dental Group, we will create a custom made mouthguard by taking an impression of your teeth and then having our delta laboratory build your mouthguard to perfectly fit your mouth.
Your mouthguard will be in the colour of your choice with your name imprinted on it, and will come in its own protective carrying case.
