A mouthguard is an appliance worn to aid in protecting teeth from being injured during sports or high impact activities. Mouthguards help to lessen the impact of injuries such as chipped or broken teeth, nerve damage or the loss of a tooth. There are a number of different mouthguards available. However custom made mouthguards by a dentist provide the best protection and are more likely to reduce the chance of injury.
If you are with a private health insurance, many funds will contribute to a professionally made mouthguard and may even cover the entire cost. For more information, phone our friendly team.
