A large number of sports accidents include injuries to the teeth and the periodontium – in both recreational and professional sports. This is not exclusively an issue of contact sports such as martial arts, rugby or football, but also concerns popular activities such as bicycling, rollerblading or skateboarding.
However, protection is quite simple: wearing a mouthguard significantly reduces the risk of injury to lips, teeth, jaws, and temporomandibular joint. The high-quality material guarantees the absorption of impacts and is highly elastic despite its extremely light weight.
For the highest degree of protection, a custom made mouth guard from your dentist is the best choice. It is manufactured based on an impression of the upper jaw, thus providing the perfect fit. During sports, the slight impression worked into the mouth guard stabilises the teeth in the lower jaw. A variety of colours and patterns is available for individualisation.
Here at Mullane Dental We make a mouth called the Bioplast Xtreme Pro. This is one of the best custom Mouth guards available.
