Oral Hygiene Tip of the Month – March

A mouthguard is a device used to prevent oral injuries to the teeth, mouth, cheek, tongue and jaw.

Without the use of a mouthguard, common injuries such as chipped or broken teeth, fractured crowns, lip/cheek injuries, root damage to the teeth and fractured jaws can occur.

Mouthguards are required for all sports where an individual may be at risk of incidental contact. Benefits of using a professionally made mouthguard as opposed to a store-bought is that it provides the individual with a better fit and seal specific to their teeth. There are heaps of different colours to choose from as well!
