Does your child wear a mouthguard?


Wearing a custom made mouthguard could save you or your child from a dental injury. Not only is a dental injury painful it can result in lifelong, expensive dental treatment.


A custom made mouthguard is designed to help absorb the shock of a blow to the jaw and to protect your teeth and soft tissues. Custom made mouthguards offer more protection than over the counter alternatives. 


Anyone who plays a contact sport, or sport where there is risk of accidental injury, should wear a mouthguard. Unfortunately most serious injuries we see occur during training sessions, so it is important to remember to wear your mouthguard when training and playing games.
