A mouthguard is an inexpensive and necessary way to protect your teeth, the value of which cannot be overstated.
It is very important for young people and adults to protect their teeth from injury while competing on the sporting field. A knock to the teeth, particularly when you are young, can lead to a lifetime of dental problems. A mouthguard is a flexible plastic dental appliance custom made to fit your teeth which, when worn, can help to protect the hard and soft tissues of the mouth from damage caused by traumatic blows and collisions.
Mouthguards often prevent injury and in the case of a severe blow, a mouthguard considerably reduces the amount of damage that may result.
