Mouthguards for your Summer Sports

It's summer sport time. By utilising a mouthguard this summer, individuals can focus on their performance without worrying about potential dental injuries.

With summer just around the corner, many people will be participating in their regular summer sports including cricket, tennis, basketball. While these sports provide countless benefits, they also come with the risk of dental injuries. Therefore, it is crucial for these individuals to understand the importance of wearing mouthguards to protect their teeth.

Mouthguards are essential for preventing serious dental injuries caused by trauma. Mouthguards not only protect the teeth but also help prevent other oral injuries. They can act as a buffer against jaw fractures, concussions and blows to the chin or jaw. They act as a cushion during impact reducing the risk of dental trauma.

At Smile Place Dental, our highly trained dentist can provide you with a properly fitting mouthguard that will not only protect your mouth, or the mouth of your child, but it will also feel much more comfortable than something you’ve bought from the shop and tried to shape yourself. After all kids often, choose not to wear their mouthguards because DIY ones are so uncomfortable.

By utilising a mouthguard this summer, individuals can focus on their performance without worrying about potential dental injuries.
