Custom Mouthguards at Diamond Smiles Dental

If you or your children enjoy playing sport, then it’s vital that you protect your teeth by wearing a mouthguard. When it comes to your oral health, it’s important not to take any shortcuts. This is why health professionals recommend visiting your dentist for an expertly-fitted mouthguard prepared in a laboratory. At Diamond Smiles Dental, we take impressions of your teeth and mouth to ensure a perfect fit every time.

Why You Need a Dental Mouthguard

It is estimated that one-third of all sporting injuries are related to our teeth and mouth, while as many as half of all children have experienced some form of dental-related sport injury. These injuries might include anything from broken or chipped teeth, to tooth separation, teeth concussion, fractures or dislocation.

Wearing a mouthguard doesn’t just protect your teeth from minor injury, but also helps to prevent more serious injuries that could affect your long-term oral health and wellbeing. The spongey material of the mouthguard is designed to absorb shock or impact to the area, lessening potential damage to your teeth, jaw, or skull.

Mouthguards aren’t just beneficial for sport either, as dentists can also create specialised mouthguards to combat issues such as snoring or sleep apnoea.
