Mouthguards are often used to protect your teeth, jaw, and head when playing physical sports. The basic type of mouthguard you can usually get from a supermarket or a pharmacy. This option is affordable, and quick, but they often don’t fit very well and can make it difficult to talk and breathe and may not actually protect your teeth as required.
Custom-made mouthguards are the best way to protect you from teeth and jaw injuries while training for or playing your favourite sports. As they are fabricated with a mould from your teeth, they are the best fitting and therefore offer the best protection. There are range of colours available.
To maintain your mouthguards, rinsing in cold water after each use and store them in a plastic container, or to keep them in a cool dry place.
Children’s mouthguards are recommended to be replaced once a year, even if they appear to be in good condition. This is because their mouth is still growing, and new teeth can affect their fit.
